The climate impact of food

Food accounts for nearly 25% of the world's total emissions of greenhouse gases. Good news is that European food consumers have the potential to reduce their climate footprint from eating with over 60% without downsides.
Climate calculations based on over 35 years of research

Greenhouse gas emissions emerge from many different steps in food production. Most important are nitrous oxide and carbon dioxide emissions from agricultural soils and methane emissions from ruminants and manure storages. Important are also emissions of carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide from fertilizer manufacture, as well as carbon dioxide emissions from machinery, processing and transport.

In order to quantify and compare the total climate impact of food we convert the emissions of all greenhouse gasses into carbon dioxide equivalents, CO2e. Based on rigorous science and over 35 years of own research on food production systems we make detailed calculations of the climate impact of food.
