Become a climate gourmet!
Our calculation is based on fresh, conventionally produced goods. The substitution of animal products for plant-based products is best for the climate. Organic, seasonal and regional products earn additional Brownie points in favour of the climate. Fair trade items are beneficial both to the climate and the producers. Moreover, the fresher and less processed a product is, the lower its climate footprint will be.
The general rule is: the fewer production stages – from animal feeding through to the steak on the plate – the less CO2
equivalent is emitted. Producing (animal-based) products does not only generate CO2
but also other gases, which are detrimental to the climate, such as methane and nitrous oxide; we converted those into CO2
