Make a dent in the 25%

25% of greenhouse gas emissions comes from food. This needs to be reduced to meet the Paris Climate Targets and minimise the risks of climate change.

The problem is it’s currently very difficult to see your impact on the planet and how to reduce your carbon footprint of food.

Test the carbon footprint of your recipes

We’ve made our food carbon footprint calculator free to use, so everyone can begin to understand their impact on the planet.

The results are based on global averages, and so can’t be used for commercial purposes. It’s still a useful guide for where your emissions come from and how you can improve.

My Emissions does offer comprehensive carbon footprint assessments and labels for food brands and restaurants. You can learn more about this here.
