Abstract (German)

In this project the research group Sustainable Resource Use carries out a study for the WWF Austria on sustainable diets and land use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions related to Austrian diets. In this context, the land and GHG intensities of different food products and diets are evaluated, key supply chains identified and the historical development of Austria’s land footprint described: Land use and land use change in relation to Austrian biomass demand: food, feed (meat), energy, other non-food; e.g. between 1990 and 2012. A further focus is set on healthy diets and the issue of food
