State-owned farming company Pāmu has reached its goal of half of its farms meeting a carbon reduction target by June this year. Pāmu chief executive Mark Leslie says the milestone means Pāmu is on track to meet its goal of 100 per cent of its farms achieving Toitū carbon reduce certification by June next year. He says they now understand where emissions are generated and can focus on reduction. The Toitū website measures greenhouse gas emissions and puts in place strategies to manage and reduce impacts. Pāmu, the largest farming group in New Zealand, manages more than 100 farms, covering nearly 360,000ha, across sheep, beef, dairy, deer, forestry, and horticulture.
