The IPCC also recommends that we insulate homes, take trains and buses instead of planes, and use video conferencing instead of business travel. Cutting meat and dairy products from your diet could reduce an individual's carbon footprint from food by two-thirds, according to the Oxford study, published in the journal Science.

Changing your diet can make a big difference to your personal environmental footprint, from saving water to reducing pollution and the loss of forests, he said. If you fly regularly, replacing flying with other forms of transport may have a bigger impact on your carbon footprint than changing your diet.
A passenger's carbon footprint from a one-way flight from London to New York is just under half a tonne of greenhouse gases. Switching from a regular petrol vehicle to an electric car could save more than double that over a year. Knowing how and where your food is produced is also important, as the same food can have huge differences in environmental impact. For example, beef cattle raised on deforested land is responsible for 12 times more greenhouse gas emissions than cows reared on natural pastures. The average beef from South America results in three times the amount of greenhouse gases as beef produced in Europe - and uses 10 times as much land.
Chocolate and coffee originating from deforested rainforest produce relatively high greenhouse gases.

For climate-friendly tomatoes, choose those grown outdoors or in high-tech greenhouses, instead of in greenhouses heated by gas or oil. Environmentally-minded beer-drinkers may be interested to know that draught beer is responsible for fewer emissions than recyclable cans, or worse, glass bottles. Even the most climate-friendly meat options still produce more greenhouse gases than vegetarian protein sources, like beans or nuts.
University of Oxford researcher Joseph Poore, and Thomas Nemecek of the Agroecology and Environment Research Division in Zurich, Switzerland, looked at the environmental impact of 40 major food products that represent the vast majority of what is eaten globally. They assessed the effect of these foods on climate-warming greenhouse gas emissions and the amount of land and fresh water used across all stages of their production, including processing, packaging, and transportation, but excluding the cooking process.
By analysing data from nearly 40, farms, 1, processors, packaging types and retailers, Poore and Nemecek were able to assess how different production practices and geographies have very different consequences on the planet. The data in the study looked at the environmental impact for 1kg of each of the different food products. Scientific background for the Greenpeace vision of the meat and dairy system towards [PDF].

Is Annie Leonard, your executive director, vegan? Are the board members? I stopped supporting Greenpeace years ago because of your irresponsibility in not promoting a vegan lifestyle. You need to do a lot of soul searching. It's a nice gesture to promote "halving" our consumption of meat and dairy and what about seafood?!
You need to do a lot better.

Thanks for your question. As we ask governments and people worldwide to shift towards a more plant-based diet and to reduce meat and dairy consumption, we are making the same shift as a global organization. Greenpeace International purchases mostly plant-based, organic, locally-grown, seasonal foods and makes vegan options available to all staff in our staff canteens.
For our official meetings, we offer mostly plant-based and vegetarian menu items. As for our International Executive Directors, Jennifer Morgan is vegetarian and Bunny McDiarmid is participating in our plant-free challenge eating only plant-based foods for at least one month.

Many of our national offices also have their own food policies that actively implement reductions or elimination of meat in their staff canteens, and push for local, ecological options whenever possible. Really happy to read this response, Ryan. If you all would be interested in trying some incredible vegan cheeses at your meetings, please let me know and I would be glad to assist in getting some companies to send samples to your headquarters.
Thank you to Greenpeace for finally taking on this important issue.
Less Is More
I like the new site and the new policy supporting the consumption of less meat and dairy. Green and Peace for ALL sentient beings would be the logical next step and for the sake of us all must come soon as possible. This will alert our moderators to take action.
