This third Teagasc Marginal Abatement Cost Curve (MACC) for agricultural greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from Irish Agriculture was conducted by members of the Teagasc Climate Centre. It builds up on the previous reports published in 2012 and 2018 (Schulte et al. 2012, Lanigan et al. 2018). Previous MACC reports explored the extent to which Irish agriculture could contribute to the EU 2020 Climate and Energy Package national GHG target. This target was a 20% reduction
in GHG emissions relative to 1990.
