Environmental impact assessment in a food network
This chapter begins with an overview of the food network and the movement towards a sustainable food supply chain. It continues with an overview of LCA, distinguishing between the following areas of protection: ecosystem health, human health, and resource provision capability for human welfare on the one hand, and on the other midpoint impact categories (including climate change, ozone depletion, human toxicity, respiratory inorganics, photochemical ozone formation, acidification, eutrophication, ecotoxicity, land use, and resource depletion) which may touch upon one of the areas of protection.
