Description

The Cool Farm Tool is an online greenhouse gas, biodiversity, and water calculator for farmers. Specifically, it measures:

  • Greenhouse gases: field level assessment including nutrients, energy, and land use.
  • Biodiversity: quantitative scoring of whole farm management.  
  • Water: crop irrigation requirements and blue and green water footprints. 

The tool also helps to:

  • manage supply chains: track environmental impacts and improvement over time.
  • communicate environmental benefits: use it to gain recognition for good practice by quantifying and communicating environmental benefits of your practices.
  • engage suppliers: encourage, motivate and reward good practice in an industry-standard way.
