Investigating the environmental impact of various food production methods and identifying sustainable practices to reduce the carbon footprint of the food industry: A Review

Author(s):

Dr. Tamanna Begam

Abstract:

This research delves into the environmental ramifications of diverse food production methods, with a primary focus on discerning sustainable practices to alleviate the carbon footprint within the food industry. As global concerns surrounding climate change intensify, understanding and mitigating the environmental impact of food production becomes paramount. Employing life cycle assessments (LCAs), this study evaluates key metrics such as energy consumption, land use, water utilization, and greenhouse gas emissions associated with different food production methods. The literature review synthesizes existing knowledge, emphasizing the significance of sustainable practices. Methodologically, transparency is prioritized in data sourcing, selection criteria, and analytical techniques. The results offer a comprehensive comparison of the carbon footprint and environmental impact across various food production methods, pinpointing areas for improvement. The ensuing discussion interprets these findings within the broader context of environmental sustainability, exploring implications for policy, industry practices, and consumer behaviour. The conclusion underscores the urgency of transitioning to sustainable practices in the food industry and proposes actionable recommendations for diverse stakeholders. This research contributes to the ongoing discourse on food system sustainability, offering insights that can inform strategic decision-making and future research endeavours.
