Environmental impact of plant-based foods Differences in the results can partly be explained by inclusion of LUC in some studies. Without LUC, most studies show a climate impact below 1.8 kg CO2 per kg product. Climate impact, including LUC of peanuts from Argentina, Sudan, and Uganda, is likely to be above 4 kg CO2eq per kg product. Imports from Argentina are relevant for the Swedish market (6 references).. Studies:
