CM1 Diet

The diet model calculates the carbon footprint of producing the food a person eats. Built on a foundation of economic, environmental, and diet-related data from government and research institutions, it uses personal diet information to calculate an annual food footprint. It takes into account the full supply chain including cultivation, processing, packaging, transport, storage, and retail, to provide an authoritative carbon score.

Our whitepaper The American Carbon Foodprint showcases some of the analyses and data sources behind the model.
