Why these 3 impact factors?

These 3 factors have been chosen because they are the most important indicators of climate problems caused by food production. More explanation about the factors here.

Which factor is the most important?

For global warming, CO2eq is the most important parameter, but this does not mean that the other parameters are not important. Land use and water consumption are also causing many problems worldwide, read more here.
