Where does the data come from?
The data on the impact of food products (CO2eq, water and land) comes (mostly) from the RIVM and is based on the weighted average supply of this product on the Dutch market.
Why these 3 impact parameters?
These 3 parameters (CO2eq, water and land) have been chosen because they are the most important parameters of climate problems caused by food production. Find more explanations about these parameters here.
Which parameter is the most important?
CO2 is the most important parameter for global warming, but this does not mean that the other parameters are not important. Excessive land use and water consumption are also causing many problems in the world. Read more here.
