Carbon emissions and the economic impact of healthy eating in Scotland

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    This article uses on-going research at the Fraser of Allander Institute that explores the possibility of a policy “triple win” in the area of healthy eating. It shows that were food consumption in Scotland to follow healthy eating guidelines, it would not only improve the health of the population, but also have positive environmental impacts and may even be associated with positive economic impacts as well. We demonstrate that were healthy eating in Scotland to become more prevalent it would impact positively on several stated Scottish Government policy objectives in health, environment and the economy.
