Greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture, forestry and other land use sectors contribute 25% of net anthropogenic emissions, and the methods for modelling and understanding these complex sources of emissions have been steadily evolving. Recent publication of the new GHG accounting, reporting, and target-setting guidance for the Forestry, Land and Agriculture (FLAG) sector by the GHG Protocol and Science Based Targets initiative present the latest guidance on both how to account for GHG emissions from land use change, land management, and carbon removals, as well as how to report on and set Net Zero targets for these emissions.
3Keel is an Oxford-based sustainability consultancy who are committed to making food systems, supply chains and landscapes fit for the future. 3Keel have extensive experience supporting clients on climate change, and helped to develop and draft the BRC Climate Action Roadmap. 3Keel also had a role in the development of the new GHG Protocol guidance. Alongside climate work, 3Keel is heavily involved in improving the sustainability of soft commodity supply chains, working with food sector companies, NGOs, and governments to collaborate, manage data, benchmark standards, and develop and implement practical strategies for sustainable sourcing.
FLAG GHG accounting and target-setting is a new and relatively complex topic for businesses to manage. In light of this, the 3Keel team has spent time digesting the contents of the 400+ pages of guidance released, and has been supporting their clients on interpretation and implications.
The BRC invited 3Keel to run a webinar for BRC members explaining the contents and implications of the new guidance documents.
