Official meetings and events hosted by the Ministry of Environment in Germany will no longer be serving or offering meat. Last week Germany's environment minister, Barbara Hendricks, announced that—due to environmental reasons—meat shall be banned from any functions associated with the Ministry of Environment. This is a huge step and even bigger statement coming from a country that is well known for its schnitzels and sausages. However with the science-based evidence linking climate change to animal agriculture as well as water and land degradation, this is an important move to make. Thanks for setting such a positive and forward-thinking example, Germany!
