Eggs

During egg production the feed accounts for the majority of the climate impact, around 80%, and the livestock accounts for around 20%. It takes between 2.0 to 2.2 kg of feed to produce 1 kg of eggs. However, a hen lays many eggs in her lifetime so the feed she eats is relatively efficiently converted into protein. The emissions of greenhouse gases are approximately 1.5-2.5 kg of carbon dioxide equivalents per 1 kg of eggs.
