Climate change is a serious threat to our planet, the earth, and the environment. Scientists have even said we’re past the point of return when it comes to global warming, making it even more critical to lower our impact on the earth.

One way to lower global warming is by eating less animal-based proteins in place of plant-based proteins.

It seems that we may be headed in the right direction when it comes to diet since a new report from MSCI and Blue Horizon shows a potential increase in alternative proteins from 13 million metric tons per year to 97 million metric tons by 2035.

They estimate that by 2035, 11% of the world’s protein market will be plant-based or alternative proteins. According to a press release, they believe “Europe and North America would reach ‘peak meat’ by 2025, and the consumption of animal protein there would actually begin to decline.”

The research examined companies’ investment and revenue exposure to the alternative protein market and found that 46% of companies were in the plant-based protein space, with 10% of those companies generation 5%+ of their total sales from alternative protein products.

According to an email release shared with One Green Planet, the research also showed that “Companies involved in the plant-based and alternative proteins space showed a higher prevalence of science-based and comprehensive carbon reduction targets, carbon emission disclosure and reduction efforts across the full value chain.”
