Carbon and environmental impacts of poultry production: 2020 and beyond

The project will provide an industry benchmark and improvement trend over the past 10 years, showing the low environmental impacts of egg and chicken meat production.

Carbon mitigation options and the supply chain pathway for carbon neutral products will be determined, including assessment of the cost of establishing carbon neutral or ‘low carbon’ egg and chicken meat products.

The environmental credentials of the poultry industries will be demonstrated in scientifically robust way, enabling industry to confidently communicate performance to the market, general public and government.
