Environmental impact of plant-based foods European production considered most relevant. This assessment included one study on frozen green beans. One study on European green beans was not considered, since it showed much higher climate impact than the other studies and did not explain the processes in detail. Further, canned green beans were considered less relevant for the Swedish market. For green beans imported from outside Europe, there is a risk of air transport. One earlier study was found on green beans transported from Kenya and Uganda with a total climate impact of 9.7-10.1 kg CO2e per kg product.. Studies: 2
