The Future is Plant-Based

What is The Future is Plant-Based?

What you choose to eat is one of the easiest and least expensive ways you can reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The food system is responsible for at least 1/4 of all greenhouse gas emissions contributing to climate change and animal agriculture is a leading cause of deforestation, air pollution, water degradation and global biodiversity loss. The Future is Plant-Based is a multi-year plan launched in September of 2022 that aims to harness the power of plants to address climate change and inequality through product and social impact innovation.
