The GiantLeaps Impact Tool
The GiantLeaps Impact Tool is an automated tool that helps caterers and restaurants to measure and manage their environmental footprint. The tool calculates the climate impact of food products you serve through an analysis of the products you use. Our GiantLeaps Impact Tool shows you which products have the highest impact, your results compared to other restaurants and measure your progress when implementing solutions to reduce your footprint.
The calculation of your footprint is done through an LCA analysis. The results are categorized in four easy to understand topics: locality and transport, seasonality, waste and a detailed analysis per product category. This way you get insight into what climate friendly food entails and how you can make your food choices more sustainable.
