Verified by CarbonCloud

A verified climate footprint is calculated with primary data from the producer or represents a benchmark production process. All CarbonCloud-verified climate footprints may be fairly compared with each other.

Agriculture leads to greenhouse gas emissions through biological processes, the production and use of inputs such as fertilizer, pesticides, and other treatments, as well as through the energy use for machinery and on-farm refinement processes.
When an ingredient used in a product has fossil origins, it is categorized as a fossil resource. This category includes the use of petroleum oil, coal, and similar.
Fossil resource
Food is moved from field to factory to consumer, using a variety of transport modes and fuels. All transport activities are included in the climate footprint, up to the stage stated in the report.
Most food products have gone through some sort of refinement. It could be cleaning, heating, cooling, drying, mixing, sterilization, fermentation, or an array of other activities. These processes all consume energy and some require the use of chemicals.
Energy and raw materials used for packaging in different steps along the production chain.
In warehouses, energy is consumed mainly for lighting, heating, chilling, and ventilation. Leakage of refrigerants – used for air-conditioning, fridges, and freezers – also contribute to climate change, since these are powerful greenhouse gases.
When an ingredient or activity has not been categorized into one of the above categories, it it shown here. This includes the production of ingredients where activities from agriculture and processing are not distinguishable or when we lack some information about the process.
”Blanched, frozen kelp” currently has a climate footprint of 0.12 kg CO₂e/kg. This value is updated when there are changes in the way the product is made, and when we update our calculations to match the latest climate science.
