The Greenway Burger is not only super tasty, it’s also a lot more climate-friendly than a traditional meat burger. The sustainability research agency co2logic put the theory to the test and compared the environmental impact of the Greenway Burger with that of a beef burger. The result? An impressively smaller footprint: the Greenway Burger is about 94% more climate-friendly.
In the research, the impact of the Greenway Burger was compared to that of a beef burger in different areas. Production, packaging, transport (inbound and outbound), energy & water usage, and waste were all taken into account. In order to get a clear picture of the impact of the beef burger, the slaughter procedures were also part of the equation. As there were no figures available on beef cows, co2logic used figures from milk cows that were processed for meat products.
The research shows that the production chain of the Greenway Burger uses 77% less fossil fuels and about 90% less energy than the production of beef burgers. It also requires a lot less land, as plants need less space to grow than cows. In order to produce a 100% plant-based Greenway Burger, we need about 96% less land. And as for water… the Greenway Burger is also at the top of its class: 54% less water is needed to produce a Greenway Burger!
As the research was done on milk cows, the results are not yet entirely conclusive. It is highly probable that the Greenway Burger scores even better. How is that? The bulk of the Greenway Burger’s impact is generated during vegetable production (79% to 99%), and Greenway is working hard to reduce that footprint, together with its suppliers. On top of that, Greenway invests in projects in third-world countries that will reduce CO2 production permanently. That way, the Greenway Burger can compensate its impact completely and become CO2 neutral. That’s great, isn’t it?
