U.S. ag accounts for less than 10% of GHGs

Continuous innovation of U.S. livestock producers lowers their per-unit GHG contributions.

A new analysis of updated data from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, combined with U.S. Department of Agriculture data, shows that U.S. farmers and ranchers continue to reduce per-unit greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs). All told, the U.S. agriculture sector accounts for less than 10% of total U.S. emissions. That’s less than the emissions from the transportation, electricity generation and industrial sectors. Globally, agriculture accounts for about 24% of GHG emissions.
