The National Pork Board continues to develop tools to help producers understand the environmental impacts of their pork operations. Since 2008 the National Pork Board has been working on a specific plan to assess and better understand the pork industry’s carbon footprint.

The new "Pork Carbon Footprint Calculator" was released at the at World Pork Expo.  Producers say it's also a good 'What If' tool for energy use in your operation.
