Beef’s footprint 14 times its own weight

26th August, 2009 - Posted by admin - Comments Off

A study was funded by the UK Government´s Department of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) on the carbon footprint of beef, tomatoes & etc. The author, Adrian Williams of Cranfield University, developed a computer model to calculate the carbon footprint of beef and some other agricultural products.  This finds 1 kg Beef  (deadweight) has a carbon footprint equal to 14 kg CO2e

On the DEFRA website it is now difficult to access to this work but details can be found in the resources section of the Green Ration Book.
