WWF-Project: Environmental impacts of food
Our diet is associated with high environmental impacts. On behalf of WWF-Germany, corsus has calculated the environmental impact of the diet in Germany. In addition to the current diet, three scenarios were analysed. All were based on the recommendations for a diet for a healthy planet (Planetary Health Diet) of the Eat-Lancet Commission. The basis for the calculation of the environmental impact is the food consumed by a person on average per year. In the current diet this is based on statistical data. A basket of foods was created for each of the three scenarios: a flexitarian diet, a vegetarian diet and a vegan diet.
The first and second part of the study has been published (in German only):
