Farm ZEro C is an SFI-funded collaboration between industry and academia aimed at addressing SFI’s Zero Emissions Challenge. Farm ZEro C aims to deliver a range of sustainable strategies which collectively can help to create a more sustainable and resilient dairy sector. The ultimate aim of the project is to develop a replicable net zero emissions model for dairy farmers. Farm ZEro C strategies include sustainable land management practices, deployment of bioeconomy and renewable energy technologies, anti-methanogenic dietary additives and improving and increasing farm natural habitats. Building on these strategies, Farm ZEro C will develop a business plan in the form of a social innovation blueprint which can be replicated among farmers to support a wider adoption of Farm ZEro C strategies throughout the agricultural sector. The innovation blueprint (business model) will be digitalised in the form of a web platform containing key commercial links, case studies, scientific reports, and other trust-worthy resources that will inform the farmer of how climate mitigation strategies have and can be implemented on farms and the results that they have obtained.
