The full impact of supermarket products

By news / On / In Development

The product carbon footprint measures the overall amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gas emissions (e.g. methane and nitrous oxide) associated with the product throughout its lifecycle. All greenhouse gas emissions are expressed in the amount of CO2 that would have an equivalent global warming impact, which is called a CO2-equivalency factor. This allows for combining impacts occurring at different steps of the supply chain and at different geographical locations. Calculating CO2 equivalents based on a standardized product unit (for example 1 kg of bone-free meat) gives a reasonable basis for comparison with different production systems. via
