Net Zero Test and Trial - Expression of Interest

11 November 2020

East Midlands Net zero

There is an exciting opportunity on offer to East Midlands members following Defra’s approval of an NFU proposal for a new ELMs Test and Trial which is specifically focused on net zero action.

This test and trial will explore how farmers can contribute to the government’s 25 Year Environment Plan goals by working towards the NFU’s 2040 net zero ambition.

The project has been fully designed by the NFU and will be tested on 200 farms across the country, running through to autumn 2021.

In the East Midlands region we are organising a regional workshop for 12 members, if you are interested in attending the workshop, please complete the expression of interest form below.

This information will help us ensure an even balance of members across commodities and counties in the region. We will let you know if you have been successful by December.

Deadline to complete the form is 27th November.
