Webinar description

Scientists from CE Delft, GFI, and GAIA published a cultivated meat life cycle assessment (LCA) in The International Journal of LCA. This publication builds upon the findings from the cultivated meat LCA that GFI and GAIA commissioned and disseminated in 2021.

In this webinar, Elliot and CE Delft LCA Specialist Pelle Sinke, M.Sc., will review the updated data on the environmental impacts of cultivated meat versus conventional meat. Powered by data from over 15 companies across the cultivated meat supply chain, they will address emissions, land use, water use, air pollution, feed conversion, and more.

Preview the slide deck and join us on April 12th for an in-depth review of the data!
