Eating more environmentally conscious in our dining halls: the environmental score

Transparency in terms of sustainability

The Studierendenwerk Karlsruhe is marking its meal plans with an environmental score from now on. It is based on the Eaternity database (EDB) and uses a star rating to indicate how climate-friendly the meals are. This Eaternity Score is the first award for a future with climate-friendly food worldwide and is calculated together with scientific partners.

Legend for the environmental score
The score shows the climate impact in four areas. First, an average score is calculated and displayed for each meal on the menu. The evaluation of the four areas of climate, water, animal welfare and rainforest, which can be seen in the detailed overview, calculates the average score.

You can find all information and background information on calculating the environmental score here:
