Our specialist advisors support farmers in carbon reduction and carbon capture practices, to enable businesses to respond to an increasing requirement to reduce carbon footprints and maximise carbon capture opportunities. There is potential for those businesses who are able to deliver these changes to open up new market opportunities and generate new income streams.
We offer services that include production of greenhouse gas (GHG) baselines and associated action plans to reduce GHG emissions, advice to increase carbon capture in soils or through woodland creation alongside support in the accreditation and marketing of carbon units, whilst ensuring that these practices integrate with whole farm business management and planning.
The transition to renewable energy provision is an area we have vast expertise in across solar, wind, anaerobic digestion and battery storage. Investments are long term, requiring detailed appraisal and project planning which our expert teams can support. The drive towards lower cost renewable energy production will present increasing opportunities for landowners and growers, which could represent the opportunity for a reduction of on farm electricity costs or new income streams as part of a diversified income portfolio.
