Theme Overview

The climate crisis, coupled with global food and nutritional security concerns, has positioned alternative proteins as a vital solution. At the outset, alternative proteins (plant-based, fermentation and cultivated technologies) are less resource-intensive compared to their conventional animal protein counterparts. Nearly 14.5% of global GHG emissions are attributed to livestock production. The sector is also the number one cause of deforestation due to cattle ranching and soy production, a significant driver of water scarcity and pollution risks and the largest user of antibiotics. Alternative proteins can and should play a role in mitigating the environmental impacts of the global demand for protein.

The FAIRR Initiative engages key players in the food sector to support and enable a dietary transition in line with planetary boundaries, and is working to evaluate the sustainability of novel technologies.
