On 5 February 2020, we are co-organising an event on the true price of meat, together with the True Animal Protein Price Coalition (TAPP). The event is co-hosted by MEPs Bas Eickhout (the Netherlands, Greens/EFA), Mohammed Chahim (the Netherlands, S&D) and Sylwia Spurek (Poland, S&D).

In the context of the Paris Climate Agreement and the European Green Deal, we are calling on the EU to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent. During the event, we will discuss what the EU can do to promote a true price of meat – both in the EU and worldwide.
