United States Poultry & Egg Association recently updated its Carbon Footprint Estimation Toolkit. The association released its Carbon Footprint Estimation Toolkit in the summer of 2011 to assist its members with adhering to the Environmental Protection Agency's greenhouse gas reporting requirement and to reduce the burden of performing greenhouse gas emission calculations.   

The Carbon Footprint Toolkit has been updated with a narrated tutorial to make the emission calculation and record keeping process more efficient. A tool to calculate the greenhouse emissions from mobile sources has also been added. This tool allows facilities to calculate emissions generated from its fleet of product delivery vehicles, as well as company automobiles and the personal automobiles of its employees.
