Carbon Management Centre

Green globe grassThe SRUC Carbon Management Centre supports research, learning and consultancy activities that contribute to a reduction of carbon emissions from agriculture and food production.

Activities within the Centre are designed to provide innovative new solutions and advice on improving efficiency and reducing emissions from farming systems.

Work within the Centre builds upon a well established record of activities undertaken by SRUC that promote Low Carbon Farming. These include: 

  • Innovative and internationally-important research in crop and livestock systems
  • Provision of advice to government and policy makers on options for lowering greenhouse gas emissions from farming systems (see video)
  • Development of a carbon calculator, tailored for use in Scottish environments and backed by a comprehensive package of advisory activity
  • College courses at a range of levels that explain the links between farming and climate change, and prepare students to face important future challenges
  • Engagement with the farming community in the development of a network of climate change focus farms that form an important part of SRUC's Farming for a Better Climate initiative.
