Seminar on carbon footprint assessment in the agricultural sector: what contribution can digital tools make?
Ecolabels, low carbon labels, carbon credits and offsets... Agriculture has been expected to provide solutions to improve its environmental footprint and contribute to reducing the environmental footprint of food and even other industries. What can be done to better manage and promote it? For half a day, MyEasyFarm participated to assess the issues, the tools available, their benefits and limitations to support the generation of carbon credits through agriculture, eco-design methods for agricultural raw materials, and environmental labelling products for agricultural food. The event was co-organised by the president ofAgroTIC and the president of Elsa-Pact with the support ofAgri Sud-Ouest Innovation in charge of facilitation and was held online at 2pm on 13 April 2021.
The day was moderated by Pierre Compère from the Agri Sud-Ouest Innovation cluster
