About the developer

World Food LCA Database (WFLDB) is a global initiative led by Quantis in partnership with leaders in the agri-food sector. WFLDB was launched in 2012 in response to the growing need for reliable, transparent, and coherent environmental data and a consistent methodology for assessing the impacts of agri-food products. The database provides players across the agri-food value chain with high-quality emissions factors and environmental footprint data (including carbon, water, land, etc.) to help them better understand the impacts of their products and bolster decision-making.
