What produces these emissions?
Most of these emissions are directly related to the animals. When they digest their food, ruminants generate a lot of methane, a gas that contributes to global warming.
Livestock also produces emissions from the use of fertilizers, tractors and the machinery used in farms.
What actions can lower these emissions?
Balancing your diet by including foods from different categories and using locally and sustainably grown products can help reduce the emissions associated with your diet.
