Un Calls For a “Massive” Decrease in Animal Agriculture


The United Nations environment arm names CEOs of plant-based companies Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods as top innovators to address inefficiencies in meat production, the “world’s most urgent problem.” Global organization the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) published a synopsis about its 2018 “Champion of the Earth” winners—the CEOs of brands Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods, Ethan Brown and Pat O. Brown, respectively. UNEP explained that both individuals received the prestigious title for their respective innovations to displace animal agriculture—an environmentally damaging industry it states “has brought us to the verge of catastrophe.”

UNEP explained that the entrepreneurs’ plant-based products are imperative to achieving climate-change goals. (vegnews.com)
