The production of high-quality plant proteins has overall much less impact on natural resources and the environment than production of animal proteins and contributes to public health. The urgency to act now is more relevant than ever. The ultimate challenge is to make sustainably produced high-quality plantbased proteins more readily available and more attractive for human consumption worldwide. We are inviting partners who want to work on these solutions in a coalition of experts, solution providers, supporters and market players.
How the covenant signatories want to address this issue:
- By fostering collaboration with national & global initiatives and actors which have similar ambitions
- By setting up and supporting projects & activities with (new) partners and doing it ‘first time right’
- By promoting a favourable international policy climate
- By strengthening local sustainable production & consumption
The coalition was set up in 2016 to address and facilitate this challenge and a Covenant Plant Based Proteins was signed in March 2017. All coalition partners are committed and contributing to the challenge by capacity building activities or initiating & strengthening scalable projects, in different countries around the world.
