The science is clear: If we don’t reduce greenhouse gas emissions from food and farming, we can’t avoid the worst impacts of climate change. EWG is changing diets and changing policies to reduce the carbon footprint of our food. We’re translating climate science so consumers can understand the impact of their choices. We’re also advocating for reforming farm programs to help farmers reduce greenhouse gas emissions and withstand the extreme weather caused by climate change.
