In late 2022, Farmanco Management Consultants and the FLINTpro team signed a Memorandum of Understanding outlining their intention to cooperate to further commercial opportunities in the natural capital and carbon reporting space.
The partnership aims to address the growing need for technological advancements in measuring and managing carbon on farms.
Farmanco CEO Keith Symondson says farmers are at the heart of every aspect of the consultancy’s approach to developing tools and information for Natural Capital Management.
“This is a rapidly evolving area, and we believe that it’s vitally important for growers to be provided with the most up-to-date and accurate information to help them make the best decisions for their businesses. The FLINTpro team share our view on this, with both companies understanding the importance of involving growers in the development of the tools and software products.” – Keith Symondson, Farmanco CEO.
FLINTpro’s CEO, Dr Rob Waterworth, states that demand for reliable carbon measurement is on the rise from industry.
“Reporting and information needs are growing rapidly. Simple spreadsheets and web-interfaces are not going to meet the needs, even in the near future. Combining FLINTpro’s advanced modelling with Farmanco’s detailed data collection processes and farmer reports will help future proof Farmanco clients while also supporting them to make the most of the changing market.” – Dr Rob Waterworth, FLINTpro CEO.
Initial work has begun to share knowledge and expertise between the organisations, with a series of updates to be announced in the future.
