Canadians Should Eat Less Meat and Dairy to Achieve National Climate Targets, Study Finds

According to a new report by Navius Research, commissioned by World Animal Protection, Canadians should substantially reduce their red meat and dairy consumption if the country is to lower emissions from the agricultural sector. Canada’s aim is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by forty percent below the 2005 levels by 2030, and achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. The report’s results indicate that Canada can reach these targets by reducing meat and dairy intake first by thirty percent then fifty percent.
