Cool Food – a delicious way to make a difference
A quarter of all greenhouse gas emissions come from food production. By simply changing what we eat, we can make a difference to our climate. Cool Food helps people and organizations reduce the climate impact of their food through shifting towards more plant-rich diets. Climate action has never been so delicious. Cool Food is an initiative of the World Resources Institute.

Make a difference
by eating plant-rich food
Food production is a significant contributor to climate change, accounting for a quarter of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Some foods generate more greenhouse gas emissions than others. Food that comes from animals make up two-thirds of all agricultural GHG emissions and use more than three-quarters of agricultural land. Plant-based foods generally have a much lower environmental impact.
Enjoying more plant-based foods is an important way to reduce pressure on the climate. Take beef versus beans for example. Producing beef uses 20 times the land and emits 20 times the greenhouse gases as producing beans, per gram of protein.
