Gaucho Project: Carbon Footprint of Argentine Beef
The Gaucho Carbon Footprint project was born from our awareness of the impact we have on the planet and our commitment to quality.
For us, quality is not only about bringing the best quality steak in the world to the UK, it is also about sustainability. It’s no secret that farming cattle comes with some environmental issues, which is why Gaucho and supplier of premium beef Rellman Foods have partnered on a project to quantify and report the carbon footprint of the beef served at our restaurants.
In the first project of its kind, we have worked with the Carbon Group to gather carbon emission data at our cattle farms in Argentina, empowering all farmers and ranchers to participate in and learn from the results.
Alongside the production of beef, transport from farm to table is also being mapped, allowing us to have complete overview of the supply chain and carbon footprint of our core product.
This work has enabled us to begin the process of offsetting the beef carbon emissions, but our overall aim is to work with our partners and suppliers to reduce emissions at source using better land management practices and trialling new technology.
