Pig Sector Farmer-Led Climate Change Group: climate change and greenhouse gas evidence

Summary of existing evidence around the pig sector and greenhouse gases.


1. The Climate Change Plan update incorporates some likely methodological changes not yet included in GHG inventory figures resulting in 7.7 MtCO2e in 2018 rather than 7.5.

2. Scottish agriculture tables - economic report: 2020 edition - gov.scot (www.gov.scot)

3. Due to the approach taken in assigning emissions, emissions from Other livestock were not attributed. Some pig emissions could be attributed, with a very small increase in pig emissions as a result.
