Soy i
Soy is both a food and a fuel source for humans. As a food source, it is consumed directly in products such as tofu and indirectly through meat and dairy consumption (soy is an important source of feed for livestock). Of the total global supply, approximately 13 percent is used for direct human consumption, 17 percent is used as a biofuel feedstock, and 70 percent is used as animal feed (Potts el al. 2014). Soybean oil is a common feedstock for biofuels, representing 27 percent of global biodiesel feedstock use (Steinweg et al. 2019).

Annual Deforestation Footprint

When trees are felled, CO2 is released into the atmosphere. When no trees are planted in place of the felled trees, these emissions are attributed to the primary commodity which is cultivated or extracted in its place. This is important in the shift from calculating territorial emissions to consumption-based emissions.
