ENERGY EFFICIENCY

PR.EE.a

Standards

Where a business uses a significant amount of energy, a written energy policy must be in place detailing how energy is used and the plans that are in place to ensure optimal energy consumption

How you will be measured

  • Where viable, the use of renewable energy is encouraged
  • Energy Policy

PR.EE.b

Standards

It is recommended that energy use on farm is monitored

How you will be measured

  • Farming equipment is selected and maintained for optimal energy consumption
  • The use of non-renewable energy sources are kept to a minimum
  • Where appropriate Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions are monitored and measured
  • Energy use records
