We Are So Much More ThanGreat Cheese
Here at Climax, our vision extends further than solely bringing the world healthy, ethical and delicious dairy alternatives. We believe in global change and are passionate about creating a lasting impact in the world. Along with meeting ten of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, we also create impact in the following areas.
Animal agriculture is the third largest emitter of carbon dioxide, and the land it uses could be rewilded for natural carbon sequestration.
PANDEMICS AND BIOSECURITY
If humans didn't eat animals, COVID-19 wouldn't have happened. A post-animal agriculture world may reduce the chance of more pandemics.
GLOBAL FOOD SECURITY
The majority (90-95%) of calories fed to animals to produce meat, dairy and eggs are simply lost to other needs the animal has. By using plants directly, we solve for this dire inefficiency.
Agriculture uses 70% of freshwater globally, with animal needs the highest. Plant and microbial-based replacements will use far less water.
ECONOMICS & POVERTY
Animal agriculture is resource intensive. By shifting to a more efficient food production system, food becomes more affordable.
Animals are difficult to breed for better nutrition. But we can create plant and microbial-based foods without saturated fat, heavy metals, parasite infestations, and pink slime.
