The fact sheet presents the tool of the product-related life cycle assessment as it is currently used for assessing ecological sustainability in the food and farming sector. Based on internal and external calculations, the authors analyse the meaningfulness of comparative life cycle assessment of food from extensive production systems with those from more intensive production systems. In the interest of a comprehensive environmental assessment of food production, the authors propose substantial extensions of the existing method at different levels.
