Effort sharing for the climate means cutting meat consumption and production – with a triple benefit for health

A transition towards sustainable diets is necessary for a realistic climate strategy and represents the agricultural sector’s main climate mitigation opportunity.
Changing the way we eat is key to preventing dangerous climate change and meeting the commitments of the Paris Agreement. With the launch of our policy recommendations we call on governments to take urgent action on the meat in our diets, for the sake of our health and the planet.
