This is the first time that results of scientific life cycle assessment (LCA) studies of animal products are compared based on aspects of environmental friendliness.

The global warming potential of a kilo of pork varies from 3.9 to 10 kilos of CO2-equivalents; that of a kilo of chicken from 3.7 to 6.9 kilos. The impact of beef on the environment lies between 14 and 32 kilos of CO2-equivalents. The production of a kilo of beef also requires a bigger land area and more fossil energy. Studies into chicken and pork have shown that chicken scores just a little better than pork.
