What if you can easily reduce your daily carbon emissions by swapping food ingredients?

Before we dig into HOW let’s understand WHY. Well, it turns out that food is actually responsible for around one-third of all global greenhouse gas(GHG) emissions, and reducing this number is one of the biggest and most important challenges we are facing in the world. So by being a little bit picky with what we put on our plate, we can cut all food-related emissions in half! 

Klimato, as an initiative to calculate food-related GHG emissions, uses Life Cycle Assessment to meticulously track the carbon footprint of ingredients from production to store shelves (farm to industry gate). By working with restaurants and food companies they managed to reduce 8712 tones of CO2 (equates to flying around the earth 1452 times) in 2022.

Thank you, Vermeer Xie, for sharing climate love to Klimato! We appreciate that our post sparked discussions on food and sustainability. 💚 Confronting climate change can sometimes make us feel powerless, leading us to question how we, as individuals, can make meaningful contributions. However, simple solutions as opting for more climate-friendly choices in our food consumption ranks among the most impactful climate actions we can take. While there are various food items to consider, the most effective action lies in reducing our consumption of ruminant meats such as beef, lamb, and goat. A positive aspect is that even if you find it challenging to completely give them up – for instance, if you're a fan of beef burgers – you can still make a significant impact by limiting your intake to just one burger every week and a half! Imagine being able to consciously choose low-impact meals while dining at a restaurant by being aware of the carbon footprint of each dish. Would this knowledge influence your food choices?

        @Klimato Absolutely! And I believe it's the same answer for many others as well. It's important to spread the word and remind people to make more conscious choices in their daily lives.

          This can have a significant impact on reducing daily carbon emissions. Choosing plant-based options over animal products and opting for locally sourced, seasonal ingredients can help lower the environmental impact of our food choices.

                        The link between our food choices and carbon emissions is often underestimated, taking personal responsibility by making informed ingredient swaps is a small yet powerful step towards a more sustainable future

                          I think we should create awareness to people on food or ingredients which can emit carbon to the environment .I know most did not know about this .We can stop some ingredients to prevent carbon emissions .

                                      @zelda_ninga_442 sure ,by so doing we can reduce a bigger percentage of carbon emission that comes from the ingredient
