Environmental impact of plant-based foods All data considered relevant for the assessment. Most studies show a climate impact below 2.3 kg CO2e per kg product. One study showed an impact of above 3 kg CO2e per kg product. This was not considered in the assessment due to its deviation from the other identified studies. For Swedish-produced products such as tempeh made from peas or faba beans, the climate impact is likely to be somewhat lower than for similar imported products.. Studies: 4
