Denmark has approved a climate agreement that includes the largest investment into plant-based research and development in the European Union.

This climate agreement entails Denmark providing $90 million for five years to farmers who produce plant-based foods, as well as an annual fund of $11.7 million until 2030, in a commitment of transitioning to plant-based foods.

With 82% of food’s carbon footprint in the EU coming from dairy, people are more aware than ever of how significant a plant-based diet can be for the environment.

This is only a recent promotion of plant-based eating. Earlier this year, the Ministry of Environment released dietary guidelines promoting plant-based foods.

The sale of plant-based foods in Denmark has skyrocketed as people are starting to replace their pork heavy meals with vegan meat replacements. Danish companies are also jumping on the new trend as many are starting to develop plant-based alternatives, while vegan brands are becoming more well-known and supported.

This is a huge step for the meat-loving country as they are starting to make more ethical and earth-friendly choices with their food.

This is the kind of change that all countries must start to make if we want to reverse the effects of climate change. Time is running out, and we must get control of this climate crisis before too much damage is done.
