Food is responsible for 24% of global greenhouse gas emissions, equivalent to all the emissions from energy and heat and way more than from transport.
Livestock causes over half of all food emissions and some meats have a much bigger impact than others.
Pound for pound, beef and lamb cause five times more emissions than pork and poultry. So simply switching to low carbon meats for everyday meals cuts a tonne off your annual carbon footprint.
That’s equivalent to the emissions from driving 3,500 miles – just under half the average yearly UK mileage.
- Choose free range and organic meat
