Calculating carbon footprint is the first step towards reducing it. We focus on measuring the CO2 emission of food products, from raw materials, through production (or service provision), distribution, consumer use and disposal/recycling. Comparison analysis shows the sensibility of the measurement to different steps of technology. It helps identify possible ways of reducing the rate of charging the environment. We intend to encourage producers and consumers to be more environmental friendly.
