Pork without a footprint

Side-event: Friday 31 August 2018, 10:30-12:00

Public statements on carbon- and sustainability-footprints sometimes overcast the benefits and joys of eating meat. And to some extent rightfully so: we urgently need to preserve our planet for future generations. But are footprints of meat really as bad as sometimes stated? Maybe, maybe not. This session will discuss approaches to objectively calculate footprints of meat, and innovative approaches to reducing those footprints. Infused by varying insights from the audience.
