LCA of 500 food items
Consumers as well as professionals in the grocery and catering industry are increasingly demanding information about the climate footprint of the foods they buy or sell. This project will result in a public climate database of more than 500 foods.
Concito – Denmark
This project is a collaboration between CONCITO and 2.-0 LCA Consultants with the support of Salling Fondene where the database itself is prepared by 2.-0 LCA Consultants.
The Large Climate Database
Consumers as well as professional players in the grocery and catering industry are increasingly demanding information on the climate footprint of the foods they buy or sell. From the fall of 2020, consumers as well as professional players in the grocery and catering industry will be able to gather knowledge and inspiration in “The Large Climate Database”. The project consists of a professional dialogue phase during the spring of 2020, preparation of a climate database of more than 500 foodstuffs, and publishing and dissemination of the database in Danish and English at the end of 2020. “The Large Climate Database” will be a central tool that can be used, for example, as a basis for a simplified climate labeling system, climate-adjusted recipes, apps for calculating a purchase’s climate footprint, school curriculums, upgrading kitchen staff, information campaigns and much more.
