Choose low emission foods –
What can you do?
Among dairy products, cheese and butter have been reported to have one of the highest environmental impacts.
Choose lower-emission meats: fish, chicken, duck, kangaroo, pork. Despite where you get your beef or lamb from, substituting with chicken and pork will reduce your carbon emissions.
While good quality meat provides our bodies with important vitamins, minerals and nutrients; plant based proteins have their own unique set of benefits too.
Being a Climatarian means your diet should include foods that emit fewer emissions. Therefore, it is necessary to understand the hierarchy of impacts on food production.
