This event was recorded as part of a live webinar on 10 July 2023.
The food system is responsible for one third of global emissions and it is estimated that livestock farming alone makes up 15% of global greenhouse gas emissions – that’s almost as much as the entire transport sector. With the urgent need for climate action, many people are switching to meatless diets or cutting down their meat intake to reduce their carbon footprint. But with technology continuing to advance, will we be able to eat meat sustainably in the future?
For this webinar, we’ll be exploring the revolutionary food technology making its way on to the market that will change the way we eat our proteins – from cell-cultured steak to scrambled eggs without chickens.
This is the next discussion in our new ‘Critical Conversations’ series with Mars Wrigley UK bringing together pioneers from different technologies looking to build our net-zero and no-carbon future.
