I’m not a life cycle assessment expert. Will I be able to use this tool?

Yes! Food Query is for anyone interested in a simple way to access the carbon footprint of agri-food products — no technical LCA expertise required. 

In particular, we designed it with corporate sustainability teams, ecodesigners, food engineers, ingredients specialists, procurement teams, and environmental consultants and researchers in mind.

Where does the data come from?

Food Query runs on data from the World Food LCA Database, which provides players across the agri-food value chain with high-quality emissions factors to help them better understand the impacts of their products. 

With Food Query, you can easily access 500 datasets from this powerful database to see the carbon footprints for 150 agri-food products from 56 countries.

The data is published and third-party reviewed, so you can use it for your calculations with full confidence.
