Background

Food production is currently estimated to account for around 25% of Sweden’s total impact on the climate, around 75% of eutrophication and around 20% of primary energy use. These figures include all ingredients and resources used throughout the food-production life cycle. These findings have led to increased interest in and demand for greater knowledge of the environmental impact of various food products from producers, public bodies and researchers. In recent years, there has also been increased interest in the impact of food products on the climate.
