Norwich City Council Endorses Plant-Based Treaty

At a full council meeting held on March 14th, Norwich City Council became the third council in the United Kingdom (UK) to endorse the Plant Based Treaty, which calls for a shift towards plant-based diets in order to reduce consumption-based emissions and help tackle climate change. The council will now write to the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs supporting the UK’s endorsement of the Plant Based Treaty as a companion to the Paris Agreement. The council will also write to Norfolk County Council to request a carbon impact assessment of the meat and dairy industries across the county.
