This report accounts for an environmental system analysis of three scenarios for future pig farming systems in Sweden. The three scenarios are focused upon A) Animal welfare; B) Environment and C) Product quality at low prices. The purpose of the study is to gain further knowledge about the environmental impacts of different future farm production systems(More)
Goal and Scope The goal of this study was to estimate the life cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and the use of energy and land from beef produced in Brazil and exported to Europe (Stockholm, Sweden). A national top-down model approach of Brazilian beef production was applied in the analysis and LCA methodology was used as the primary method. The(More)
In this study, data on resource use and emissions for dairy farms in southwestern Sweden were collected and analysed with Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology. The purpose of the study was to gain increased knowledge of the environmental impact of today´s milk production and of the variations between farms regarding resource use and emissions. Data were(More)
To identify mitigation options to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from milk production (i.e. the carbon footprint (CF) of milk), this study examined the variation in GHG emissions among dairy farms using data from previous CF studies on Swedish milk. Variations between farms in these production data, which were found to have a strong influence on milk(More)
The feasibility study was prepared in a multi-stage discussion process within the context of the Task Force "Integration of social aspects into LCA" of the UNEP-SETAC Life Cycle Initiative. The methodology of environmental or biophysical LCA was taken and checked, whether and how social aspects can be integrated or supplemented to conduct a Social LCA(More)
SUMMARY The goal of this study was to estimate the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions related to consumption of animal products in Sweden 1990 and 2005, using a life cycle perspective. The objectives were: ‐ to estimate total and per capita GHG emissions in Sweden caused by the consumption of meat, dairy products and eggs from 1990 and 2005 and ‐ to investigate(More)
