Poultry – Carbon inventory introduction

  • Site / company name and logo here

This is an AgriFood Skills Australia Ltd project developed in partnership with Energetics Pty Ltd and funded by the Australian Government under the Clean Energy and Other Skills Package

What is the problem?

  • Climate change

  • Resource depletion

    • Energy

    • Water

    • Materials

  • Increased emissions, contamination & waste

  • Reduced air quality

  • Loss of biodiversity

How is economic activity affected by climate change?

Risks specific to Australia

  • Energy pricing

  • Low energy costs, greenhouse intensive coal sources

  • Costs to increase – oil prices, carbon, lack of investment, drought conditions

  • Access to Water

  • Australia is the driest continent on earth

  • Many industry sectors are dependent on access to water for operation.

  • Regulatory uncertainty

  • Carbon Price and Emissions Trading.

  • Uncertainty - difficulty in long-term infrastructure/ asset planning.

  • Market related risks

  • Climate change risks in other countries may differ remarkably – regulations, consumer behaviour

Things to consider when managing carbon – organisational boundaries

Decisions must be made as to how emissions will be aggregated. Three approaches include:

  • Equity share

  • Financial control

  • Operational control

Operational control is default boundary!

– required for reporting to Australia’s National Energy and Greenhouse Reporting System (NGER)

What is operational control? Defined in Australian law as the right to introduce or implement operating, health and safety or environmental policies

Things to consider when managing carbon – operational boundaries

Scope 1“Fuel You Burn”

Scope 2 “Fuel burnt for You”

Scope 3 “Emissions from services You use and products You produce”


Nat Gas


Process emissions


Reporting / reduction programs

  • NGER (Australian) – Mandatory reporting of national energy consumption and production and greenhouse gas emissions above legislated thresholds.

  • EEO (Australian) – Mandatory identification of energy efficiency opportunities by energy users above thresholds.

  • CDP (International) – Voluntary requests for greenhouse and energy disclosure from over 2,500 organisations. CDP acts on behalf of 534 global institutional investors

NB: No longer considered “voluntary” for Australia’s top 200 companies

The business case for carbon management– emissions & profit

Figure 8: Carbon intensity by sector (VicSuper Carbon Count 2009)

The business case for carbon management – carbon labelinguk carbon trust

  • Aldi – first company in Australia to introduce Carbon Reduction Labels.

  • Suppliers now required to

  • report GHG emissions

  • commit to GHG reductions

Woolworths and the Australian Food and Grocery Council conducting study on benefits of carbon labeling


The business case for carbon management – carbon trading

  • Japan – currently designing ETS that is likely to be implemented in 2011

  • NZ – ETS started 1 July 2010

  • China - likely to have an ETS

  • EU – existing ETS may legislate a 30% reduction target

  • UK Coalition - setting a floor price for carbon

  • US – multiple regional ETS’

From 1 July 2012 – Australia has a price on carbon set at $23 per tonne of CO2-e – following a number of other countries

NB: Emissions trading works: EU verified emissions showed a decrease of 11% in 2009

The business case for carbon management – carbon price

Some pay directly

eg. Large users of coal such as coal fired power stations

Q: Who pays the Carbon price?

Some pay indirectly

eg. Consumers of electricity / smaller users of fuels

Think petrol excise – you pay, but payment collected upstream

The business case for carbon management – what level of price?

NB: Very costly for some

Costs spread across the economy

Risk and opportunity identification

These include:

  • Physical – damage to functioning of assets / take advantage of shifting climatic zones

  • Regulatory – exposure to / seize opportunities around:

    - current and future requirements;

    - administrative burden;

    - direct and pass-through carbon price costs

  • Litigation – CEO liability or opportunity (NGER and EEO)

  • Competitive – business environment will change – advantage or risk?

  • Reputational – information is in public domain

The business case for carbon management

Experience shows that sustainability makes good business sense

  • Embedding sustainability within an organisation’s broader business strategies frequently results in organisational and technical innovations that generate both top- and bottom-line returns.

  • Reducing inputs to a business, due to a carbon-constrained economy, reduces costs.

  • Reducing inputs requires new or improved products or even new business lines.
