LANGBANK, Sask. – Saskatchewan’s Seed Hawk Inc. has become the first agricultural equipment company to accurately measure the carbon footprint for its products.
Three of Seed Hawk’s products have been certified by Carbon Trust, which indicates how much carbon is used during production and use of the equipment.
“Seed Hawk is committed to environmental sustainability,” said Peter Clarke, president and CEO.
“This commitment not only relates to our company’s environmental footprint, but also our commitment to help farmers operate more sustainably.”
Clarke says in an increasingly carbon conscious world, it is advantageous to provide customers with product’s environmental information.
The Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC) analyzed the three seeding systems and submitted the data to Carbon Trust, an international company headquartered in the United Kingdom.
Seed Hawk has been building state-of-the-art seeding systems just outside of Langbank, Sask. since 1992. Its products are sold in North America, Australia and Europe.
