Policy Database – Additional information – expandable text

go to plain version (and scroll to ID 24)
go to toggle content version (scrolling to anchor links does not work)

Pro: Aus- und einklappbar.

Contra: eher unübersichtlich sowohl bei der Benutzung als auch in der Erstellung. Zudem habe ich noch keine Lösung gefunden, per Anker-Link auf eine bestimmte Stelle zu verweisen.

Sector 1: Agri-Food

  • 6 goals / policy strategies
  • 9 measures / actions
  • 25 policy instruments

Goal / policy strategy 1.1: Reduction of live stock

  • 4 measures / actions
  • 17 policy instruments

Measure / action 1.1.1: diet shift

  • when 50% of Europeans eat meat only once per week and have a roughly 70% lower dairy consumption this would reduce GHG emissions in 2050 by 73 Mt which equals 16% of emissions from agriculture (source: McKinsey 2020)
  • a vegan / vegetarian diet reduces the GHG emissions of the European footprint by 13.9% / 9% (compared to 2007) and reduces the land footprint by 4.7% / 0.6% (source: Vita et al. 2019)
  • a switch to animal-free protein sources such as soy, lentils, other pulses and meat substitute products reduces global GHG emissions by 18-87% (central value 40%) (source: Creutzig et al. 2022)

Policy instrument: action plan on mass catering (ID 5)

Quantification:

  • a 50% reduction of meat dishes in public mass catering saves 0,43 million tonnes of GHG / year (range: 0,2-0,92 Mt GHG) (source: UBA 2022)

Goal / policy strategy 1.6: Protection from overconsumption

  • 1 measure / action
  • 1 policy instrument

Measure / action 1.6.x: less consumption of climate harmful food and drinks

  • 1 policy instrument

Policy instrument #24: marketing ban of climate harmful foods and drinks

Quantification:

  • when 50% of Europeans eat meat only once per week and have a roughly 70% lower dairy consumption this would reduce GHG emissions in 2050 by 73 Mt which equals 16% of emissions from agriculture (source: McKinsey 2020)
  • a vegan / vegetarian diet reduces the GHG emissions of the European footprint by 13.9% / 9% (compared to 2007) and reduces the land footprint by 4.7% / 0.6% (source: Vita et al. 2019)
  • a switch to animal-free protein sources such as soy, lentils, other pulses and meat substitute products reduces global GHG emissions by 18-87% (central value 40%) (source: Creutzig et al. 2022)

Implementation examples:

  • in the UK, a total online advertising restriction for products high in fat, sugar and salt is about to be implemented (source)
