“Combining consumption and farm production data, we found that across the board, diet-related environmental impacts were reduced with a plant-based diet — particularly greenhouse gas emissions,” says Louise Seconda. Seconda is from the French Agence De L’Environnement Et De La Maitrise De L’Energie, and is one of the study’s authors.

Diets were based on less consumption of animal products, as recommended by the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization. This recommendation comes from a more sustainability framework. Why? Because of the amount of energy requirements of livestock farming includes greenhouse gas emission caused by the livestock. This was outlined by the study.

Seconda hoped that future studies can take into account other factors like pesticide use, leaching and soil quality. This would give a more extensive understanding of how the entire food production life cycle impacts sustainability.

“We wanted to provide a more comprehensive picture of how different diets impact the environment,” Seconda said of the study.
