Nutritional value of meat should be considered when comparing carbon footprints

The nutritional value of meat must be considered when comparing carbon footprints – that is the key message from a recent study.

Research into the environmental footprint of farm production systems is absolutely necessary for us to move the farming industry forward in an informed evidence-based manner. Whilst lamb production systems are under increasing pressure to reduce their environmental footprint and contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases, this research will certainly help inform discussions around the optimal diets for lamb production systems from both a human nutrition and environmental sustainability perspective
