Petition Take action to end factory farming and reduce meat and dairy consumption
In order to improve public health, combat climate change and reduce animal suffering, the Government should:
1. Commit to end factory farming, starting by phasing out existing ‘megafarms'.
2. Set a target of a 50% reduction in meat and dairy consumption by 2030 and impose taxes to achieve this.
Factory farming can spread disease and cause animal suffering and is contributing to climate change, with over 37% of methane emissions originating from factory farming.
Meat and dairy consumption can also negatively impact human health, and WHO has classified processed meat as a Group 1 carcinogen.
