Germany’s most comprehensive CO2 calculator for foodstuffs and meals went online in late 2016. It was commissioned by Unilever, and ifeu calculated the CO2 balance sheets for a variety of foodstuffs for inclusion in the calculator. The calculator makes it possible to determine the CO2 balance sheet of individual foodstuffs and an extensive range of recipes by means of a straightforward drag-and-drop function. It is also possible to compare vegan, vegetarian, flexitarian and other forms of nutrition. The food calculator and background information, climate-friendly recipes and helpful tips are available here free of charge.
