The technical details! The scope of the Calculator is scopes 1, 2 and 3 – meaning it is comprehensive and covers direct and indirect emissions. In IPCC Livestock calculations it covers Tiers 1 and 2.
PAS 2050 is an international standard for carbon footprinting. We are both compliant and not with this standard. The Farm Carbon Calculator is compliant with the methodology of he PAS 2050 but takes a much broader approach as it includes scope 3 (indirect emissions) and carbon sequestration, neither of which are PAS 2050 compliant.
We believe that this wider scope of the Calculator means the Farm Carbon Calculator is far more comprehensive and accurate for the user.
