It's time to transform our global food system
Factory farming is the single biggest cause of animal suffering on the planet and is fast becoming one of the biggest environmental challenges of our time.
Our global food system is teetering on the edge of a cliff—and without immediate action, the future of our planet and all its inhabitants hangs in the balance.
Factory farming is a disaster for animals, confining and exploiting them by the billions in the name of profit. But it’s never been clearer that the catastrophic impacts of intensive animal agriculture extend well beyond the farm and animal welfare: Factory farming destroys our environment, degrades our soils, decimates cherished wildlife, endangers public health, contaminates communities, and fuels the climate crisis.
It's the end of the line for factory farming.
A brighter future is within our reach—but to pull us back from the brink, the United Nations must support critical measures to transition our global food system away from factory farming and establish a strong, resilient system in its place that works for us all.
We are building a movement with millions of citizens around the world, bringing together organisations and businesses from every sector that factory farming impacts.
Dear United Nations,
We call on you to establish a Global Agreement on Food and Farming, which includes:
- The end of industrial animal agriculture
- A reduction in the global production of animal sourced foods, and where consumption is reduced by at least 70% in high-consuming populations by 2030 and by 60% globally by 2050
- A shift to regenerative and agroecological farming systems, ensuring regulatory and financial environments that support a just transition
- The protection of the rights of indigenous people who suffer the negative impacts of industrial animal agriculture and feed production
