Hong Kong residents are some of the biggest meat eaters in the world, and their diets are contributing to climate change. The recommended daily amount of meat is the equivalent of one 6 oz steak, but on average Hong Kongers consume more than 3 times this amount–the equivalent of two 10 oz steaks. Researchers at @hkuniversity say that “consuming a 10 oz steak is equivalent to emitting around 20 kg of carbon dioxide”. Under the Paris Agreement, Hong Kong is looking to reduce its emissions 26-36% by 2030. If residents just switch to eating the recommended amount of meat per day, they can cut the city’s livestock related emissions by 67% 🐮 What are you doing to reduce your diet’s carbon footprint?
