Environmental impact of plant-based foods Sweden imports mushrooms mainly from Europe. No study on production of Agaricus bisporus (Sw: trädgårdsschampinjon) from the identified export countries was found. Studies on Agaricus bisporus show a climate impact of 2.5-4.7 kg CO2e per kg product. Climate impact is therefore considered to be below 4.7 kg CO2e per kg product. Earlier studies indicate that climate control and the energy source can be important (similar to greenhouse for this production) (3 references). Studies: 3
