Abstract

Why are greenhouse gases of particular significance in the food sector? Whilst there are many industries contributing towards the total greenhouse gas emissions of the UK, the food industry is important because of its visibility - after all, when it comes to food, all consumers are stakeholders. In addition, it is undeniable that its contribution to total greenhouse emissions is significant: Defra data reveals that over a fifth (22 per cent) of the UK's greenhouse emissions emanate from the food industry, whilst contributing a far lower proportion to Gross Domestic Product. The food industry is a key 'carbon hot spot' and requires significant attention.
