UN Environmental Programme Unveils Hugely Significant Report for Alternative Food Sources

The UN Environmental Programme has this week published a hugely significant report which has recognised that “Novel plant-based meat, cultivated meat and fermentation-derived foods could be instrumental in reducing the environmental impacts” of conventional animal products, as well as showing “promise for reduced risk of zoonoses and antimicrobial resistance”.

This important report is a clear call to action for governments as the climate talks in Dubai turn to our food system. It shows that, with the right investment and political support, alternative proteins can help to satisfy consumers’ appetite for meat, while drastically reducing emissions and land use – giving farmers the space they need to adopt regenerative approaches.
