Research Manager at Stray Dog Institute and GFI advisory council member Laura Driscoll Ph.D. on how alternative proteins can address some of the world’s biggest challenges—if they do it right.
As the world inches closer to 2050, the deadline to meet net-zero emissions, the alternative protein industry needs scientists and students to help decarbonize and future-proof the global food system.
Alternative proteins are critical to a biologically diverse, net-zero emissions world. Additional funding can help us deploy this powerful decarbonization tool.
GFI Brazil’s Biomas Project will allocate up to R$135,000 to each research project that transforms native Amazon and Cerrado plant species, such as babaçu and macaúba, into raw materials for the alternative protein industry.
Global efforts to curb emissions, protect marine biodiversity, and reduce the impacts of climate change on our oceans should include investments in plant-based and cultivated seafood.
GFI marks Earth Day 2021 by taking stock of its actions, mapping its theory of change to three of the most fundamental concepts in Earth science and ecology.
With government support and robust public policy, alternative proteins can help us achieve an equitable and sustainable global water system.
