Pastoral Greenhouse Gas Research Consortium

The PGgRc research programme aims to provide New Zealand livestock farmers with the knowledge and tools to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions from the agricultural sector.

New Zealand is a signatory to the Kyoto treaty on Climate change and has commitments to reduce its overall GHG emissions to the level they were in 1990. Agriculture is a major contributor to New Zealand's economy and also responsible for 48.5% of the nation’s GHG emissions. The PGGRC is a commitment by the pastoral sector to address these emissions while ensuring that our nation’s economic wealth is enhanced.
