    Goals / Remit

    Our mission is to restore biodiversity and reduce the impact of climate change by transforming the global food system. To do this, we’re making delicious, nutritious, affordable and sustainable meat, fish and dairy from plants.

    Animal meat production uses nearly half of the world’s land, is responsible for at least 15% of global greenhouse gas emissions and consumes 25% of the world’s freshwater. We make meat from plants using a small fraction of the land, water and energy — so people can keep eating the foods they love, without harming the planet they love.
