Chart: The Carbon Footprint of the Food Supply Chain
According to the largest ever meta-analysis of food systems, the carbon footprint of different types of food in your diet can vary widely.
@Snoro interesting. Anecdotally, people are very fussy about plastic food packaging, and pride themselves on avoiding it. Judging by that chart, for many food groups its environmental cost is negligible.
@michiel Perhaps what is most worrying is its dispersal across the planet.
@Snoro I suppose the data is not available somewhere to play with it? I'd really like this graph to be normalized by energy content of the food instead of per kg.
Sorry, I haven’t seen this graphic anywhere else with the ability to play with it.
@Snoro For more context how that fits in the overall emissions, see this hady plot from https://www.wri.org/blog/2020/02/greenhouse-gas-emissions-by-country-sector
