Buffalo refers to the bone-free meat from buffalo. The environmental impact information on this page includes GHG emissions that occur as a result of the materials, production, packaging, and transport life cycle stages. It does not include the environmental impact of retail sale and consumer transport, storage, cooking, and disposal. The average (mean) carbon footprint or GHG emissions, attributed to the product life-cycle stages from material production to distribution, are 62.59 kg carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) per kilogram bone-free meat.[1]

The primary source for this environmental impact information is a meta-analysis published in the Journal of Cleaner Production. The authors of the meta-analysis located one global warming potential (GWP) value for buffalo in one life cycle assessment.[1]
