There is hardly any other food that fuels the climate and biodiversity crises as much as meat. Human rights violations are happening daily in the meat supply chain, not only in the Global South. However, no government in the world currently has a strategy to significantly reduce meat production and consumption. Moreover, banks and investors are financing the industry with billions of euros. If current trends continue, 366 million tonnes of meat will be produced worldwide in 2030 – with fatal consequences for people and the planet.
The Meat Atlas reveals new facts and data on global meat production and consumption, its impact on people, biodiversity and the climate, and alternative solutions.
