Activities per year
The project has explored various LCA methodological approaches, the significance of assumptions, the availability of data, and in part the communication challenges that may exist in calculations of the climate impact from Danish fisheries. Ultimately, the results of the project can contribute to the future opportunities to work purposefully and documentably to reduce the climate impact of Danish fisheries, where this is possible and appropriate. The project's insights will also be relevant in the context of the development of consumer-oriented environmental and climate labels or campaigns.
In the project, there has been a particular focus on investigating the possibilities and limitations of making assessments of climate impact based on data that is continuously and systematically collected at national level for (approximately) the entire fisheries sector. Such an approach could potentially make it manageable to produce uniform assessments covering the whole fishery sector on an ongoing basis, as models and data processing procedures could thus be applied uniformly and efficiently across the sector.
The project is funded by the Fiskeafgiftsfond 2020-2021, and output and activities from the project are made available on an ongoing basis via this page.
