Of our most common animals for meat consumption, the broiler chicken is the most efficient in converting cereal and protein feed to meat. In Swedish poultry production, 1.6-1.75 kg of feed is needed to produce 1 kg of chicken, which results in emissions of 2-3 kg carbon dioxide equivalents per kg of boneless meat*. Chicken thereby causes low emissions of greenhouse gases per kg of meat in comparison to other types of meat.
