Climate change Policy
Animal agriculture is one of the main contributors to climate change. Plant-based foods offer a simple solution. As such, ProVeg Political Outreach works to include agriculture and food choices in climate change policy and to propose concrete measures to tackle this vital issue.
ProVeg campaigns for informative, attractive and meaningful veggie food labelling for the benefit of the consumer. For example, together with the European Vegetarian Union (EVU), ProVeg calls for Europe-wide definitions of the terms “vegan” and “vegetarian” as well as for allowing “meaty” names to be used for plant-based alternative products.
Engaging with International Institutions
Many United Nations institutions are shaping the agenda on food, climate, and health policies, particularly since the adoption of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). ProVeg contributes to these discussions and engages decision-makers through various international forums in order to communicate the global benefits of plant-based diets.
