Have your say on sustainability
Published:  24 April, 2017

The Meat Trades Journal annual Green Survey is still open for submissions. It’s the opportunity to make your voice heard in environmental matters in the meat industry. 

The survey assesses attitudes on the industry’s environmental impact, taking into account production methods, consumption, product price and whether the industry is being victimised or not.

The 2016 Green Survey revealed that 73% of respondents felt the sector was being victimised on the issue of environmental impact (up from 62% in 2015), while 75% were concerned that an increasing number of consumers would reduce their meat consumption in the future (up from 62% in 2015).

Last year’s survey also showed that 70% of respondents believed consumers would accept higher prices for meat produced more sustainably, up from 52% in 2015.

The survey showed that more businesses were taking steps to reduce their environmental impact, with waste management high on the list of methods used. Recycling and reducing energy consumption were also popular methods among respondents.
