Raising enormous numbers of land animals for food—75.5 billion globally in 2012—causes significant emissions of three of the most important climate-changing gases, disrupting weather, temperature, and ecosystem health.

Practically every stage of meat, egg, and dairy production contributes to the climate crisis by releasing greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. HSI promotes transition away from industrial farm animal production to more sustainable—and welfare-friendly—forms of agriculture, as well as a reduction in the number of animals raised for food. You can help by adopting a diet that is more friendly to animals and the environment.
