Does Poultry Have a Carbon Footprint?

Poultry Carbon Footprint
Independent of the belief in global warming, climate change, or carbon footprints, one of the tangible effects is that consumers and the general public are aware of carbon footprints. Consumers can and do influence purchasing decisions and how food products are marketed. In response to these types of consumer questions, the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association released a carbon footprint estimation toolkit for the poultry and egg industries.
The toolkit is an Excel based program used to assist facilities in evaluating their carbon footprint and was developed in response to the Environmental Protection Agency's greenhouse gas (GHG) reporting requirements and potential GHG regulatory requirements associated with the Greenhouse Gases Tailoring Rule.
The tool kit is free to members of the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association and $200 US for all other parties.
