Abstract [en]

This thesis is   focused on making an assessment of possibilities and limitations regarding an   application of Svenskt Sigill’s climate- certification on the organization   Fjällbete. Another aim with the thesis was to be able to provide   recommendations for future development of climate certifications in order to   provide information for decision makers. The production of the organization   Fjällbete is mainly focused on lamb, and they are aiming to promote a   long-term sustainable agriculture by promoting a regenerative agriculture and   holistic management. The climatecertification provided by Svenskt Sigill was   developed during a project in corporation with KRAV (the leading eco-label   for food in Sweden), initiated in 2007. This certification mostly concern   choice of feed, nitrogen fertilizer, animal welfare and energy efficiency.   This was partly a case-study of the organization. To identify the   opportunities and limitations, the effect of an introduction of Sigills’   climate certification, three criteria were being assessed. These were the   impact on greenhouse-gas emissions, carbon sequestration and biodiversity.   The criteria were further evaluated in a table to assess how compliance with   the regulations would affect Fjällbetes’ impact on the three criteria.   From the result, it was concluded that an   application of Sigills’ climate-certification on the organization Fjällbete   would likely effect the organization significantly in the right direction   regarding their impact on greenhouse gases deriving from energy consumption.   It was also concluded that a compliance with the regulations regarding the   slaughter age for animals would potentially effect the organization in the   wrong direction regarding its impact on greenhouse gases, carbon   sequestration and biodiversity. The magnitude of the effect of the   consequences regarding a compliance with this regulation cannot be detected   from this study. It was interpreted that an application of the certification   on the organization would not help them significantly to communicate their   differentiation on the market. If more factors regarding regeneration of   land, biodiversity and conservation values would be included in the   certification, the motivation would potentially be higher. Another conclusion   was that for a future development of a climate-certification, it is essential   to include a wide spectrum of different types of farmers.

DennaC-uppsats visar upp en bedömning av möjligheter och begränsningar gällande entillämpningen av Svenskt Sigills klimatcertifiering på organisationen"Fjällbete". Ett delsyfte med studien var att kunna gerekommendationer för framtida utveckling av klimatcertifieringar.Organisationen "Fjällbete" är huvudsakligen inriktad pålammproduktion, och deras mål är att verka för ett långsiktigt hållbartjordbruk genom att främja ett ”holistic management” och regenerativt jordbruk.Klimatcertifieringen från Svenskt Sigill utvecklades under ett projekt isamarbete med KRAV (Sveriges ledande miljömärkning för mat), som inleddes 2007.Denna certifiering fokuserar främst på val av foder, kvävegödsel, djurskydd ochenergieffektivitet.Detta var delvis en fallstudie av organisationen. För attidentifiera möjligheterna och begränsningarna av effekten av en applicering avSigills klimatcertifiering, utvärderades tre kriterier. Dessa var inverkan påväxthusgasutsläpp, koldioxidutsläpp och biologisk mångfald. Kriteriernautvärderades ytterligare i en tabell för att kunna bedöma hur enöverensstämmelse med regelverket skulle påverka Fjällbetes påverkan på de trekriterierna.Av resultatet utlästes att en tillämpning av Svenskt Sigillsklimatcertifiering på organisationen Fjällbete eventuellt skulle kunna ledaorganisationen i rätt riktning avseende deras påverkan på växthusgaser somhärrör från energiförbrukningen. Det drogs också slutsatsen att enöverensstämmelse med regulationerna gällande slaktålder för djur potentielltskulle kunna påverka organisationen i fel riktning vad gäller dess påverkan påväxthusgaser, koldioxidutsläpp och biologisk mångfald.En slutsats var att entillämpning av certifieringen på organisationen inte skulle hjälpa dem avsevärtatt kommunicera sin differentiering på marknaden. Om fler faktorer avseenderegenerering av mark, biodiversitet och bevarandevärden skulle ingå icertifieringen skulle motivationen kunna vara högre.En annan slutsats var attvid en framtida utveckling av klimatcertifiering är det viktigt att inkluderaett brett spektrum av olika typer av jordbrukare.
