The world will fail in getting to net-zero emissions without rethinking how we make meat—and now. Alternative proteins may be the highest impact, scalable climate solution available outside of energy. It’s time to launch a global moonshot for reimagining meat. Dig in with an impact-focused group of innovators to understand how alternative proteins can catapult progress on climate change, reduce pandemic risk, and sustainably feed 10 billion people by 2050—all while capturing consumer fascination with novel food technology. With increased public and private support, alternative proteins can become indistinguishable in taste and texture, cheaper, and healthier than conventional meat. And animals? They could very soon be the second- or third-best way to make meat.
