Meeting the Challenge: Agriculture Industry GHG Action Plan Delivery of Phase I: 2010 - 2012
A delivery plan which sets out the initial steps the partnership of English agriculture industry organisations will take to meet GHG (Greenhouse Gas) reduction targets.
Year of Publication2011
In response to the then Government‟s Low Carbon Transition Plan, published in July 2009, a Greenhouse Gas Action Plan (GHGAP) was developed by representatives of the agriculture industry as the principal mechanism for delivering their commitment to a reduction in annual emissions in England of 3 million tonnes CO2-equivalent (Mt CO2e) by the third carbon budget period (2018 – 2022). This delivery plan sets out a long-term programme of work by a partnership of organisations that are working to encourage adoption of farm practices that help the farming sector become more competitive, whilst enhancing landscape and biodiversity.
