“Consumers, retailers, and investors are hungry for reliable sources of produce with reduced carbon footprints. Carbon score labeling is just around the corner,” says Daphne Preuss, Ceo with CarbonBook. The company announces the launch of its flagship product — an easy-to-use software tool of the same name that helps indoor growers, retailers, and input providers measure, document, and improve their carbon footprints. "This new product empowers indoor farms to become more sustainable and productive."
“With CarbonBook, growers will be able to document their carbon footprint over time, using an ISO-compliant model. This opens the door to more sustainable indoor farming and will provide the validation needed for additional revenue streams through the sale of carbon
credits", says Daphne.
Developed specifically for Controlled Environmental Agriculture (CEA), the software takes a comprehensive and nuanced approach, including evaluating and monitoring CO2 emissions, measuring carbon contribution from energy inputs, consumables, packaging, storage,
and transportation, capturing benefits from biomass production, recycling, and power generation, and providing reporting and data analysis
"The tool is designed to meet the highest industry requirements for carbon footprint products, the software uses the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and indoor agriculture-focused life cycle analysis to provide the most accurate carbon calculations available for indoor farming", Daphne shows.
The software will be showcased to the industry for the first time at Indoor Ag Con in Las Vegas from February 28 to March 1.
