BMPA investigates the links between meat and climate change

The British Meat Processors Association along with other partner organisations is holding a one day event to explore the science behind livestock related climate change.

21 January 2020, at 10:32am

Speaking about the event, Nick Allen, CEO of BMPA said: ‘If we want to make meaningful changes to how we live in order to help the planet, then we need to base our decisions on information that is accurate and specific to our situation here in the UK.

"We need to rethink what we know about meat and its contribution to climate change, because not everything we hear in the media and from the influential people we listen to is correct."

Rethink Forum is to be held in London at 30 Euston Square on 17 March 2020 and will bring journalists, influencers and Government policy makers together with scientists and experts on both sides of the climate change debate. BBC journalist and Countryfile presenter Tom Heap will be chairing the event and ensuring a fair exchange of scientific opinions.

Speaking of the motivation behind the event, Mr Allen went on to say: "We want to get a balanced view of the impacts of different farming systems and explore solutions to the climate crisis that won’t have unintended consequences worse than the original problem.

"We also want to make it easier to navigate the mass of opinions, pseudo-science and genuine science that is currently shaping ordinary people’s choices about what they should and shouldn’t be eating."

Rethink is an invite only event, details of which can be found on the event website.
