Background
As meat and dairy consumption is growing worldwide, related greenhouse gas emissions and deforestation for animal food are growing too. It is expected that after 2050, the global carbon budget is used completely by greenhouse gasses relating to animal farming, if business as usual will continue.

While the aviation sector at least tries to reduce emissions and is working towards climate neutral growth after 2020, the UN and its member states do not have coordinated plans for the meat and dairy industry to reduce their emissions. While CO2 taxes are introduced nearly everywhere in the world, CO2 pricing or taxations for meat or dairy is completely absent.

According to the UN’s IPCC, agriculture, forestry and other land use accounts for 24% of greenhouse gases. The role of animal farming ranges from 6-32%: the difference, according to the Meat Atlas, “depends on the basis of measurement”. Should it just be livestock, or should it include a whole lot of other factors like deforestation? This has generated an energetic discussion around extensive versus intensive farming, and regenerative farming.

What about the giant companies that dominate the sector? A 2017 landmark study found that the top three meat firms – JBS, Cargill and Tyson – emitted more greenhouse gases in 2016 than all of France.

The UN Food and Agricultural Organisation has a huge collection of data, and has also published reports like the groundbreaking Livestock’s long shadow.

The Meat Atlas. Research institutes are Sustain; The Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy; Brighter Green; Sustainable Food Trust; IPES-food.

Several meat pricing reports have been published, e.g. Health tax on meat, by Marco Springmann, Oxford University, a proposal for a meat tax in 140 countries.

Goals for this event : 

1)  to share information on meat taxes and CO2 pricing for food (meat/dairy) and discuss options for strategies how to introduce those taxes and CO2-prices.
2)  to discuss global UN initiatives on food and agriculture and climate change.
3)  Discuss CO2 reduction options for Food & Agri in Europe, see https://tappcoalition.eu/policy-proposals ; the Dutch case of ‘fair meat pricing’ a consumer tax on meat of ca. 34 eurocent per 100 gram, based on CO2 and environmental costs; revenues to be used for sustainable farming, lower VAT on vegetables, fruits and plant based meat, and compensation for low income households. A majority of Dutch public supports it.
4)  Start new and empower existing partnerships and coalitions on meat taxation and CO2 pricing of food.
