NFU map showcases farmers' contributions towards 2040 net zero goals

26th Nov 2020 / By Alistair Driver

More than 100 NFU members have pledged to work to achieve net zero by signing up to a new interactive map created by the NFU.

NFU carbon mapThe NFU's 'Net zero Pledge Map’ highlights the work being done by members in England and Wales that are already taking positive steps to make their farms net zero by 2040.

The map enables users to zoom in to zoom to the view the specific steps producers are taking. The pledges are anonymous and the map will only zoom to 10km on the google maps scale bar. 

NFU deputy president Stuart Roberts said it was great to see so many members signing up. 

“The NFU has set the ambitious goal of reaching net zero greenhouse gas emissions across the whole of agriculture in England and Wales by 2040 and we know many of our members are taking positive steps to achieve this goal and that deserves recognition.

“The more members who come together to make a pledge, the bigger change we can make. Each and every action counts and by pledging for net zero on our map, you’re joining with other farmers and landowners who believe that together we can make a massive contribution to combat climate warming.”

NPA policy services officer Lizzie Wilson said: "This is a really good initiative to highlight the contribution farmers can make towards the 2040 net zero. It would be great to see as many pig farms, providing they are NFU members, on the map as possible."
