The production of food of animal origin significantly contributes to GHG emission, land use, climate changes and biodiversity loss. At the same time, in many areas around the world animal production is a crucial sector of human activities. The understanding of the interactions between livestock farming and environment and the development of measures to mitigate the carbon footprint of animal production systems, is gaining growing importance in the international decision makers’ policy agenda. In addition, the consumers’ awareness about quality and sustainability of the production cycle of animal food products, and the interest for setting quality brands associated with animal production are increasing. Consumers increasingly demand for food associated with sustainable production systems that contribute to the conservation of biodiversity, while confronting climate change by controlling GHG emissions, etc. The EU great diversity of agricultural systems associated with semi-natural habitats and rural landscapes of recognized environmental value is also essential for other productive systems, such as tourism.
