Food and Drink Advanced Measures

What are the Advanced Measures?

A more thorough measure considers the actual environmental impact of food and drink consumed at an event:

  • Total CO2 emissions for all food and drink consumed
  • Total CO2 emissions for food and drink consumed per visitor

Measuring the environmental impact of what food and drink is consumed requires the use of carbon calculators/ carbon footprinting software. Carbon calculators can calculate the amount of CO2 and other Greenhouse Gases which are emitted as a result of producing the amount and type of food and drink being consumed. Below are several resources that can assist event organisers when using advanced measures to assess the impact of food and drink consumed at their event.
