SRUC have conducted a research project into reducing emissions from farming in order to make food production more sustainable.

Researchers at SRUC form part of a new Independent Climate Change Inquiry to explore how a low-carbon landscape can support a bright future for farming and food.

The aim is to produce a consensus report on the way forward for farming and land use in Scotland in the context of the Scottish Government’s commitment to net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045.

By focusing on sustainable food production in a changing climate, ensuring Scotland takes into account rural community resilience and social justice, the project is working towards SDG2.
