Agriculture sustainability and measurement

Government works with industry to better understand and measure the environmental impacts of Alberta’s agri-food industry.

Introduction

Environmental Footprinting (EF) is a method used to determine the impacts of a product or process in many industries and countries. It can assist with decision-making and enable effective environmental management for direct market and economic benefits. Sustainability indicators and quantification tools have been developing for use in the agri-food industry. These efforts help primary agriculture producers demonstrate their sustainability.
