Circle Carbon Scan: Transitioning Towards a Low-Carbon Circular Economy for Food in London

Download Download

The Circle Carbon Scan shows the link between the quantities of food that flow through Greater London, fueled by Londoners' consumption, and their associated consumption-based emissions*. Mapping material flows and emissions through London’s entire food and beverage supply chain enables the identification of emissions hotspots. It also uncovers suitable circular interventions that can cut the city's consumption-based emissions.

In collaboration with ReLondon, we have developed scenarios to highlight where the greatest reductions in consumption-based emissions can be made at different points across London’s food and beverage supply chain. 

Interventions associated with an ambitious scenario hold the potential to reduce the consumption-based emissions of Greater London’s food system by an estimated 31%. In this ambitious scenario, reducing per capita meat consumption by 70% was estimated to yield a 20% reduction in London’s food-related consumption-based emissions per year. Reducing food losses and waste generated in London by 50% could deliver an estimated 10.5% reduction while combining this reduction with the circular management of waste could bring a cumulative emissions reduction potential of 10.9%.

We will contact you to discuss how you can pursue concrete and actionable solutions that will lower your consumption-based emissions, make your city more circular and help achieve your climate goals.

* Consumption-based emissions are allocated to the consumers or users of goods or services. They incorporate the lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions of products and services that are consumed, as well as the emissions associated with waste management activities. These emissions may occur both within and outside a given territory, and are allocated to the final consumers or users, rather than the producers of those emissions.

“Ends” Framework
‘Ends’ frameworks help us envision the dot on the horizon and ensure the end goal we are working towards takes key concepts that we care about into account.
“Means” Framework
‘Means’ frameworks provide us with the tools to translate visions into concrete realities. Where ‘ends’ frameworks put a dot on the horizon, ‘means’ frameworks pave the way.
