In what it says is a first for New Zealand, this month Taupō-based dairy company Miraka will be reporting farm-specific carbon emissions for each of the over 100 farms it works with.
The reports will give a detailed understanding of greenhouse gas emissions, and compare results between farms.
"Currently many of our farmers have little awareness of their carbon footprint," says Grant Jackson, Miraka's general manager of milk supply.
"Measurement and reporting are the first steps in the journey. Once we've identified the biggest impacts on each farm, we can start working with our farmers on reduction targets and strategies."
