A carbon diet refers to reducing the impact on climate change by reducing greenhouse gas production specifically, CO2 production.
A carbon footprint is historically defined as the total emissions caused by an individual, event, organisation, or product, expressed as carbon dioxide equivalent.
Carbon neutrality, or having a net zero carbon footprint, refers to achieving net zero carbon emissions by balancing a measured amount of carbon released with an equivalent amount sequestered or offset, or buying enough carbon credits to make up the difference.
Climate change mitigation consists of actions to limit the magnitude or rate of long-term climate change.
Farm-to-table (or farm-to-fork, and in some cases farm-to-school) is a social movement which promotes serving local food at restaurants and school cafeterias, preferably through direct acquisition from the producer (which might be a winery, brewery, ranch, fishery, or other type of food producer which is not strictly a "farm").
The term food system is used frequently in discussions about nutrition, food, health, community economic development and agriculture.
The Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) is a treaty-based international organization headquartered in Seoul, South Korea.
Making various personal choices has been advocated as a means of fighting climate change.
Individual and political action on climate change can take many forms.
An individual's diet is the sum of food and drink that he or she habitually consumes.
A low-carbon economy (LCE), low-fossil-fuel economy (LFFE), or decarbonised economy is an economy based on low carbon power sources that therefore has a minimal output of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions into the biosphere, but specifically refers to the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide.
The following outline is provided as an overview of and topical guide to sustainable agriculture: Sustainable agriculture – applied science that integrates three main goals, environmental health, economic profitability, and social and economic equity.
'Seasonal produce ' refers to the times of year when the harvest or the flavour of a given type food is at its peak.
Slow Food is an organization that promotes local food and traditional cooking.
"Slow Money", a 501(c)3 non-profit organisation based in Boulder, CO, has had considerable early impact pursuing its mission: To catalyze the flow of capital to local food enterprises and organic farms, connecting investors to the places where they live and “bringing money back down to earth.” Through their national gatherings, regional events and local activities, over $40 million has been invested into more than 400 small food enterprises around the United States.
