Transforming climate calculation for Swedish agriculture

We helped a client within the agricultural sector to develop a climate impact calculation model by managing the project and facilitating collaboration between technical teams, product owners and calculation specialists. The project resulted in a pilot launch of the product, enabling a more sustainable and transparent view of the agricultural sector’s impact on the climate.


The demand for quality-assured climate data within the agricultural sector is rapidly increasing. Consequently, there is a need for a shared tool in the industry and a validated calculation model that caters to multiple stakeholders. 

We assisted our client with the mission of unlocking the power of agricultural data for a growing, profitable, and more sustainable farming sector. The client offers a data-sharing platform and act as the node for data sharing and innovation within the Swedish agricultural value chain. Thus, the client has a key role in addressing the industry’s evolving needs. 

The client envisioned the development of a climate calculation platform for Swedish farming. The challenge was clear: create an automated climate calculation model with quality-assured data. 

What we did

As project managers for the development of the climate calculation model, we led a specialized team and acted as a bridge between technical teams, product owners, and calculation specialists. The project required a delicate balance between research and feasibility. Our focus centred on navigating the complexity of available data, user-friendliness for farmers, and understanding how these factors influenced the end results. The team closely engaged with reference farms, ensuring that they were an active part of the development process.


After approximately six months, we unveiled the calculation model and the technical tool in a successful pilot launch. It was released to reference farms and became a prominent feature at various expos. We started by measuring the climate impact of cattle and milk production and expanded to encompass the entire farm’s carbon footprint. 

This successful collaboration and pilot launch was an important step in displaying the potential benefits of having a common data platform within the sector and showing that an industry-wide standard for calculating climate impact is possible.
