YEN Zero is creating a space where:
- Knowledge can be shared around key net-zero topics
- Metrics for calculating cropping carbon footprints can be agreed upon to create consensus across the industry
- Mitigation strategies can be communicated and tested on farm to find out ‘what works’
YEN Zero focuses on the analysis and benchmarking of combinable crop carbon footprints on a per-field basis. In the near future, we aspire to grow this into carbon accounting on a whole farm scale. The benchmarking of crop greenhouse gas intensities will enable fair and easy comparison of emissions between farms, fields, and crops. From there, we will be able to see what mitigation strategies work best and explore these further to see if the benefits can be replicated for others.
