How would changing your diet change these environmental impacts?

Use the Planet-Based Diets Impact & Action Calculator to see what changes you can make to your diet to help reduce the impacts on the environment in your country

Beta Version Numbers generated from the Impact & Action Calculator may differ slightly to numbers in the National Impacts data, as they are based on dynamic calculations of total food groups, rather than subsets within a food group. The Current Diet food ratios are used so the variance is greater for other diets.
