The end of the line for factory farming
From pollution to the climate crisis and wildlife extinctions. From animal cruelty to human hunger and malnutrition. Take a closer look at almost any global challenge, and you’ll find food at its core.
In intensive farms, billions of animals are cruelly confined or bred for unnaturally fast growth or high yields. 40% of global arable land is used to feed animals instead of people – driving deforestation and massive loss of wildlife habitats. The livestock sector is a major source of global greenhouse gas emissions and a significant cause of air, soil and water pollution. Yet, the over reliance on animal protein continues to grow globally, helping to fuel the climate crisis.
If world leaders continue to ignore the impacts of animal agriculture, the climate targets in the Paris Agreement will be out of reach. Without urgent action, intensive animal agriculture threatens our very survival. It's the end of the line for factory farming, or for us.
