Mighty Earth is a global advocacy organization working to defend a living planet. We are obsessed with impact: Our goal is to protect half of Earth for nature and secure a climate that allows life to flourish.
Through our proven “perfect storm” model of driving change, we have played a leading role in persuading the world’s largest food and agriculture companies to act against deforestation, land-grabbing and human rights abuse, and we’ve driven adoption of multi-billion-dollar shifts to clean energy.
The meat industry is the largest single driver of destruction of rainforests and other ecosystems and causes more pollution than all the world’s cars, trucks, planes, and ships combined. Largely because of the meat industry, only 4% of mammal biomass on the planet are wild animals, a serious imbalance in the planet. The meat products that make their way onto the shelves of global supermarket chains are linked to large industrial meat and feed companies that have extensive records of deforestation, land grabs, habitat destruction, human rights violations and other irresponsible agricultural practices.
Large, multi-national retailers are uniquely positioned to play a large role in driving a shift in the way the world gets its protein because of their position in the global market, often seen as a leader in sustainable practices and a potential trailblazer for much-needed switch to plant-based and alternative protein-based foods. They are key customers for many of the world’s major meat and soy companies and could drive an urgent industry-wide shift of their suppliers to better practices, zero deforestation as well as more sustainable protein sources.
