Your Carbon Forkprint


Did you know that what you eat contributes approximately 20-30% of your individual greenhouse gas emissions?

We’re on an E.Mission to help you reduce your Carbon Forkprint!

Low Carbon Eating - E.Mission - Vegetable Fajitas

Tell us more....

We use internationally renown data on the real world eating habits of over 15,000 real adults to accurately analyse the environmental impact of their diet – taking into account the food’s production and preparation. Agriculture, transport, retail, packaging, cooking and waste have all been considered to determine a dish’s overall Carbon Forkprint.

We are now able to work with outlets to bring you carbon counted menus, giving you the power to make informed environmental choices about what you eat. Our handy Forkprint Calculator allows us to estimate your Carbon Forkprint based on your current diet. We also have a range of low carbon recipes you can try at home.

How to reduce your carbon footprint - Emission

Why should I care?

As sea levels and temperatures rise, glaciers melt and droughts intensify the case for sustainable living has never been stronger. We’re seeing growing efforts to reduce single-use plastics and to avoid palm oil, but tackling climate change can seem overwhelming in its breadth and complexity.

By choosing low carbon dishes, we are making a conscious effort to limit our carbon footprint, and it needn’t be a sacrifice! You don’t have to go vegan; by eating more seasonally and switching away from red meat you can cut your Carbon Forkprint by half.

Low Carbon Eating - E.Mission - Burrito

How can I get involved?

You can take control of your own Carbon Forkprint, one meal at a time. Making simple food swaps when eating out can have a huge impact. With all the burping a cow does eating beef is 10x worse than eating chicken and 100x worse than soya. But some vegetables can have a big impact too; asparagus sourced out of season produces 28 times the amount of greenhouse gases as eating it in season, because of the plane trip it has to take from South America.

We are developing a range of services to inform individuals and businesses as to how they can reduce their carbon footprint. We want to promote sustainable eating and sustainable food practices that help diners eat local, and help businesses to meet the growing trend for low carbon eating. Our site is packed with food miles facts, as well as a food carbon footprint calculator helping users to see exactly what food miles mean.
