3. Climate-friendly eating

A package of food measures comprising:

  • Minimal consumption of animal-based foods e.g. vegan (100% plant-based food) or near-vegan diet
  • Minimal consumption of foods that are air-freighted or grown in a heated greenhouse
  • Minimal food waste
  • Minimal consumption of foods that contribute to deforestation

Complying with this target would, on average in the UK, emit 0.9 tCO2e per capita per year.

Suggested monitoring:
Keep a food diary for a typical week, noting quantity and type of food, especially any with high emissions
