    Large climate benefits from eating less meat – but still difficult to achieve the emissions target
    Reducing meat consumption has a large climate benefit – much larger than just switching from beef and pork to chicken, according to a model developed by researchers at IVL. The model is used for calculating the impact that different policy instruments may have on the European food consumption. The study also clearly shows that food consumption is a big challenge if we are to achieve the emission target of two tonnes of carbon dioxide per person and year.
