Carbon Footprint of Food – Where Are the Opportunities?

The service website Matarspor will also be introduced. It uses software that allows canteens in Iceland to calculate the carbon footprint and nutrient content of meals, giving the consumer the opportunity to be better informed and choose a meal based on the carbon footprint.
