Food Carbon Footprint calculator
What is the environmental impact of your diet?
Our easy to use food carbon footprint calculator estimates the emissions of a recipe or day’s food. This helps you to find low carbon food and maintain a more sustainable diet!
At least 20% of global emissions come from food
Food consumption is the second biggest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. However, finding information on what is low carbon food is incredibly difficult – why don’t foods come with an environmental label, just like nutritional information?
What does a sustainable diet look like?
We found this question frustratingly difficult to answer.
Therefore, all food carbon footprint calculator results are displayed as a percentage of the fair daily food emissions (read more about this here). This helps you to understand the values, find low carbon food, and ultimately eat a more sustainable diet.
