Chatham House is an independent policy institute based in London, with a mission to help build a sustainably secure, prosperous and just world with a focus on global food consumption patterns and climate impact.
Chatham House carries out independent and rigorous analysis of critical global, regional and country-specific issues, and their reports and research are a vital resource for leaders, government, the private sector and civil society. In 2014 and 2015, two critical papers on global food consumption patterns and climate impact were published. The reports’ key findings included that greenhouse gas emissions from the livestock sector account for 14.5% of the global total, more than direct emissions from the transport sector; and that reducing global meat consumption is critical to keeping global warming below the ‘danger level’ of two degrees Celsius.
