The unpleasant truth
A third of global greenhouse emissions come from the food industry. 71% from agriculture. 18% from meat farming and manufacturing.
Today, more than half of global habitable land is used for agriculture, 80% of which is set aside for livestock (representing less than 20% of the world’s calories). By 2050, demand for food will increase 60%, placing additional pressure on land and water resources, climate change and food security.
The world must transition to a global food system that can provide safe and sustainable nutrition for all humanity.
