Animal Agriculture

Nearly 25% of global greenhouse gas emissions comes from agriculture and deforestation, but if we continue with business as usual agriculture could become the world’s largest contributor to climate change. That’s because feeding a growing population takes a toll on the earth, including outsized impacts on our soil, water and climate.

Consumers are starting to recognize this massive challenge, which is part of the reason why the demand for sustainably grown food has skyrocketed. EDF is working with the world’s biggest retailers and food brands to ensure that this food – and meat – is produced as sustainably as possible, and to raise the bar for leadership in the animal agriculture sector.
