As world leaders gather for COP28 to address the pressing challenges of climate change, Veggly, world’s number 1 vegan dating app, calls attention to the significant environmental impact of the meat and dairy sectors. This year‘s conference presents a pivotal opportunity to acknowledge and act upon the critical role that dietary choices play in environmental sustainability.
“Recent studies have shown that the meat and dairy industries are among the top contributors to greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation, water pollution, and biodiversity loss,” said Alex Felipelli, CEO of Veggly. “At COP28, we urge global leaders to recognize the urgency of transitioning towards more plant-based diets as a viable solution to mitigate the climate crisis.“
The company emphasizes that the climate crisis demands immediate and bold actions, including reevaluating global food systems. “The evidence is clear: our planet cannot sustain the environmental cost of current meat and dairy production levels. It‘s not just about reducing emissions from fossil fuels. We need to comprehensively address all major sources of environmental degradation, including agriculture,” Felipelli added.
Veggly advocates for policies that support sustainable agriculture, promote plant-based diets, and reduce the ecological footprint of food production. The company is committed to working with stakeholders at COP28 to develop actionable strategies that align with the Paris Agreement goals and contribute to a healthier planet.
“We stand at a crucial juncture in our fight against climate change. The decisions made at COP28 will shape our collective future and our survival as a planet. It‘s time to embrace sustainable food choices as a cornerstone of our climate action strategy,” concluded Felipelli.
