Carbon accounting on farms is one of the best ways to start measuring and then reducing the emissions produced on-farm. This Guidance Note explains the basics of carbon accounting, recommends two carbon calculating tools available for land managers and explains how to interpret the results. The Guidance Note also runs through the different farm management practices that can help reduce emissions for a variety of farm systems.

This is the only substantive guidance written from the point of view of owners of heritage and traditional buildings.  It covers ways of cutting heating costs, improving comfort, reducing your carbon footprint, and government incentives.  It also covers growing government compulsion, especially in the context of compulsory 'minimum energy performance standards' for let buildings from 2018, and the Building Regulations.  It point out many of the risks and pitfalls in all of these areas.
