The story behind FoodFootprint
Inform, motivate and encourage consumers to reduce the climate impact of their food.
“Solving the climate problem together, by starting with yourself.”
- Insight into your impact is the first step to change.
- Concrete and easy tips for improvement.
- Scientific information.
We believe that change starts with yourself, but then you do have to know how to change. Tired of the eternal discussions about the climate and especially about the pros and cons of being a vegetarian, low impact eating and the impact you can make by yourself, we went looking for answers. That turned out to be more difficult than expected, because we could not find exact answers or numbers anywhere. So we got to work!
It is not possible to answer the many problems surrounding the climate and nutrition in one site. Nevertheless, we hope to give you, as a reader, insight into choices you make every day, whether or not you are making these consciously. Making the best choices is not always easy for us either, because there is no clear right and wrong when it comes to climate. How do you compare the impact of CO2 with that of water. Or deforestation with animal suffering. Unfortunately, we cannot answer these considerations. But we can now show clear and honest, scientifically substantiated numbers about the climate impact of food. Curious about the exact impact of the various dishes and foods in the Netherlands?

Thank you for your additions to a more sustainable world!
