Impossible Foods Wins UN Global Climate Action Award in “Planetary Health” Category

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 1 ottobre 2019

Impossible Foods, of the famously delicious ImpossibleTM Burger, today was announced as a recipient of the 2019 United Nations Global Climate Action Award. The awards are given to just 15 organizations around the world, and are intended to shine a light on some of the most practical examples of what people across the globe are doing to combat climate change.The announcement of the award winners comes shortly after the UN Climate Summit in New York and Impossible Foods’ worldwide debut in grocery stores in both New York and Southern California. Creating a more sustainable food system is core to the international architecture of progress on climate change. Impossible Foods is adding a powerful tool for climate action.Dietary shifts have long been recognized as a necessary component of climate strategy yet one of the most difficult strategies for member states to implement. The Impossible Burger is made from plants, yet tastes, smells, looks, and cooks, just like ground beef from an animal–and so it is a climate tool that can be deployed at a global scale while requiring no behavior change or compromise. Each pound of Impossible Burger substituted for beef from a cow spares about 30 pounds of carbon equivalents and nearly 300 less square feet of land–land that could be used for carbon capture by trees and grasslands.The 2019 United Nations Global Climate Action Awards are part of the wider effort to mobilize action and ambition as national governments work toward implementing the goals of the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals. Impossible Foods won its award in the “Planetary Health” category, which recognizes novel solutions that balance the need for human health and a healthy planet.
Impossible Foods’ mission is to transform the global food system to support the planet and growing human population. The company’s goal is to replace animals as a food production technology by 2035, and provide consumers with meat, fish, and dairy foods that are good for both people and the planet. Already, Impossible Foods has made significant progress towards its goals — as outlined in its 2019 Impact Report. The 2019 Lighthouse Activities were selected by an international Advisory Panel as part of the UN Climate Change’s Momentum for Change initiative, which is implemented with the support of The Rockefeller Foundation, and operates in partnership with the World Economic Forum, donors supporting the implementation of the UNFCCC’s Gender Action Plan and Climate Neutral Now.
