Greenhouse Accounting Frameworks (GAF) for Australian Primary Industries
The Farm Greenhouse Accounting Framework Tools are freely available below for the following industries:
- Dairy (D-GAF); Sheep & Beef (SB-GAF); Cropping (G-GAF), Feedlot (F-GAF); Sugar (S-GAF), Cotton (C-GAF); Horticulture (H-GAF); Pork (P-GAF); Buffalo (Bu-GAF); Deer (De-GAF); Poultry (Po-GAF)
!Note These Tools:
- Align with the Australian National Greenhouse Gas Inventory (NGGI) method, to predict the magnitude and sources of Greenhouse Gasses emitted from a farm.
- Calculate the direct (Scope 1) emissions and Scope 2 (electricity) emissions (they are being upgraded to include Scope 3 (pre-farm) emissions but also include a calculation of carbon sequestration in trees).
- Are subject to change as the NGGI methodology is updated. Please check for updates.

Soil Carbon Calculation
The GAF tools do not calculate soil organic carbon change. The following simple model can provide a good indication of the annual change in SOC, that can be deducted (or added) to your net calculation in the various GAF tools
