BUILDING A NUTRITION-CLIMATE COALITION

There is growing recognition that the path to address the global climate crisis is through food. The Nutrition-Climate Coalition has begun to address this problem head-on. The Coalition’s 10-strategies ‘blueprint’ is scaling up a societal shift towards plant-based foods in order to mitigate climate change, improve human health, and reduce healthcare costs.

Our animal-based diet has a larger impact on climate change than all transportation impacts combined!
