The Canola Council of Canada is working with Quantis* and Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development (ARD) to conduct a Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) for canola production in Alberta.











Why?


There is growing market demand for corporate sustainability programs, of which primary production plays a key role. Increasingly, retailers and processors are demanding accountability from their producers on environmental sustainability. To address these emerging needs, ARD has launched an initiative to work with producer partners to better understand and quantify the environmental footprint of the Canola Production in Alberta. This work will assist in identifying key areas in canola production to the farm-gate where innovation and efficiency improvements can be made to reduce input use and environmental impacts. This work will also identify areas of further research.

We would greatly appreciate it if you could complete this questionnaire which should take you around 30 minutes.

Please complete survey before December 7th.

What’s in it for me?

The results of this project will be communicated to producers to improve the understanding of the environmental footprint of canola production to the farm gate. It will also identify potential actions to reduce the footprint, improve productivity and enhance economic opportunities.

Please note that this survey is being conducted under strict confidentiality. The information will be aggregated in the final study report so that your individual farms cannot be identified. We know this takes some time on your part and we sincerely appreciate it.

In appreciation for participating in the survey, those who submit their survey before December 7th will be entered into a draw for an chance to win an Ipad (or cash value) and other prizes. A total of 1000$ in prizes will be given.

We look forward to sharing the results with you once the study is completed.
