Today, all sectors of the economy contribute to climate change by emitting greenhouse
gases. These emissions together cause the temperature of Earth to slowly rise.
From the perspective of the private consumption of a typical Swede, around 30% of the greenhouse gas emissions are
caused by food consumption. Reducing the climate footprint of food is therefore an important part of reaching our
climate targets. There are large differences in climate footprint between different types of food.
Therefore, by simply choosing what to eat, consumers can make a significant reduction in their personal climate
footprints. But of course, there is also a potential to reduce the climate footprint from any specific product.
