    By studying the inputs to the whole egg industry supply chain, the carbon footprint of the egg industry will be measured. This method for assessing the carbon footprint is a 'life cycle assessment' and will establish an industry benchmark to compare its carbon footprint with other industries and gauge future improvements. The researchers will also provide carbon mitigation options and determine the cost of production and supply chain pathway for a carbon neutral egg.
