The director of GreenDelta, a German agency of sustainability consulting, declares that the vegan diet has less environmental impact compared to all other diets. GreenDelta is a company in Berlin that is focused on sustainability and assessment of products, of organizations, meaning assessment of the whole environmental aspects, social aspects of products, of food, for example. Also they develop databases and software that allow them to do these assessments.
Andreas Ciroth: “I am pleased to have been invited to this conference to present and talk about environmental impacts of vegan and other diets. I just held the presentation and I think I showed a good picture of the whole, considering animal consumption of the citizens for a year and it is clear that vegan diets have a much lower impact than other diets. The presentation was explaining the approach of life’s assessment, meaning that you have a final products, like soy beans or tofu, or red meat, in one kilogram, and you look at how they were produced, when and where they were bought by the citizens; in the farm the cows eat a certain food, how it was produced and so on. It is really worldwide supply chain and we try to assess all this and to calculate the environment impact”.
During the International Congress VegMed 2016 in Berlin Andreas Ciroth presented the speech “The Environmental Impact of Vegan and Vegetarian Life Styles”. Veggie Channel interviewed him on this occasion.
