One industry links two of the greatest crisis humanity faces: climate breakdown and new pandemics. That industry is industrial animal agriculture, responsible for runaway deforestation, 14.5% of greenhouse gas emissions, the degradation of natural environments, and animal cruelty. This damage makes new viruses like COVID-19 more likely to emerge.
Yet major development banks, such as the World Bank and European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, who should be helping humanity create a safer, more sustainable world, are lending billions to the worst forms of animal agriculture. And they are ignoring our message to stop.
Development banks are funded through our taxes, in the form of contributions from governments worldwide.
Will you join us in calling for them to immediately stop financing industrial animal agriculture?
