Review and update of the UK agriculture marginal abatement cost curves (SRUC, Ricardo Energy)

Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from agriculture, land use and land use change make up a significant percentage of UK emissions.

The CCC recommended the level of the fifth carbon budget, covering the period 2028-32, in November 2015. In doing so, the Committee reviewed the latest evidence on abatement potential and costs across sectors.

The aim of this study was to develop an updated marginal abatement cost curve (MACC) for the UK agriculture, land use and land-use change sector.
