CO2 Emissions Briefing Paper

Summary
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions, food miles and greenhouse gases (GHG) are issues that are currently at the centre of world agendas and are generally perceived to be contributing to global warming. Over the past year, in partnership with industry, Seafish has undertaken several case study evaluations of GHG emissions associated with seafood, from point of capture to output as seafood products from processing factories. This briefing note summarises those research findings and looks specifically at levels of GHG emissions associated with the seafood commodities traded. It examines some of the key risks and opportunities facing the seafood industry with regards to GHG emissions as a preliminary step in helping UK seafood processors measure, reduce and/or offset GHG emissions throughout their supply chains.
