An important step in confronting climate change is assessing greenhouse gas emissions from everyday objects. Collaborating with the Science Shop, our team analyzed emissions associated with foods at the City Hall and Annex cafeterias in the Danish municipality of Lyngby-Taarbaek. Using life cycle assessment, we estimated emissions at 7.29 and 5.67 kgCO2-eq/kg from the City Hall and Annex cafeterias, respectively. Analyzing ten recipes, we found an average 35.7% fewer emissions per unit mass from 'heart healthy' over traditional Danish recipes.
