Greenhouse Accounting Frameworks (GAF) for Australian Dairy, Sheep, Beef or Grain Farms

The Dairy (D-GAF), Beef (B-GAF), Sheep (S-GAF), Feedlot (F-GAF) and Grains (G-GAF) Farm Greenhouse Accounting Framework Tools are freely available below as MS Excel spreadsheets.

  • These tools use the Australian National Greenhouse Gas Inventory (NGGI) method, to predict the magnitude and sources of Greenhouse Gasses emitted from a farm.

  • Note! CO2 are from fuel and Electricity is NOT attributed to the farm in the NGGI, or under the CFI, but have been included by popular request from users.

  • To download the spreadsheets right click on the name below and save the file to your computer first.

  • Note! These products subject to change as the NGGI methodology is updated. Please check for updates.
