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.
