Not sure about the unit of flows.The unit of flows is kT CO2-eq./year (see comment by Christian Solli). The Sankey diagram shows embodied carbon in food and agricultural products and the overall carbon footprint caused by the demand of food in Norwegian households, and consequently along the supply chains in agriculture/fisheries sector.

This is very similar to Jason Pearson’s Economy Maps for visualizing environmental impacts.


  1. Unit is kT CO2-eq./yr. The diagram shows the carbon footprint from household final demand for food, and its distribution in the economy.
