‘Net Zero & Livestock: Bridging the Gap’ continues a focus by CIEL on supporting the UK livestock sector as it strives to achieve its Net Zero ambitions.
A sobering conclusion by the expert authors of CIEL’s earlier reports exploring ‘Net Zero & Livestock’ was that for the ambitious goal of a 64% reduction in CO2-eq emissions, current technology and practices could only deliver a 24% reduction at high rates of uptake. The remaining “emissions reduction gap” requires new innovations in technology, services and management approaches.
This latest report puts the spotlight on bridging this emissions gap, exploring the existing technology gaps and identifying key areas where innovation can be targeted.
To inform report findings, CIEL has commissioned collective scientific knowledge and insight to highlight potential impact-based innovations in livestock agriculture and aquaculture that can accelerate progress towards widespread emissions reductions.
The report was published in July 2023, and was accompanied by an exclusive CIEL Member only webinar during which a selection of report authors will present their findings and answer questions.
