Meat tax to stop climate change?

The European Parliament votes on February 5 on a meeting tax that could raise meat prices throughout the European Union. Nicknamed the “sustainability charge”, the tax aims to reflect the environmental impact of large-scale meat production.The sustainability charge was presented in a new report at the end of 2019 requesting that a new pricing model be part of the European Green Deal and Farm to Fork Strategy.

The report was written by the True Animal Protein Price Coalition (TAPPC), which is a group of leading organizations in agriculture, health and the environment.
It is expected to raise € 32.2 billion among EU member states by 2030 that would stimulate more sustainable agricultural practices.
