Methane emissions should be cut by 13-16pc according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and not the 10pc that has been agreed under the Food Vision 2030 strategy.

The EPA says a larger cut in methane emissions than the 10pc committed to by the sector is needed for Ireland to meet its climate targets.
