MLA Carbon EDGE pilots open for registration

19 September 2023

Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) has opened registrations for Carbon EDGE pilot workshops to be held across Australia from October to December 2023.

Carbon EDGE is a two-day training program for the red meat industry, providing participants with an understanding of the opportunities for emissions reduction and carbon storage activities in a livestock grazing business.

As a participant, producers will use their own information to develop an action plan for their business as they learn about the practices and technologies that could reduce carbon emissions and improve sustainability and productivity.

The Carbon EDGE pilots will cover:

  • key terminology and concepts relating to greenhouse gases (GHG) within the red meat industry

  • understanding the greenhouse gas emissions footprint within individual livestock businesses

  • in-depth information on the practices to reduce and sequester GHG within a livestock grazing business

  • weighing up broad opportunities and risks associated with generating carbon credits

  • understanding carbon neutrality and how it aligns to your business goals

  • developing a carbon action plan that incorporates practical and achievable strategies to meet your objectives.
