Philip Lymbery is Chief Executive of the leading international farm animal welfare organisation, Compassion in World Farming, Visiting Professor at the University of Winchester and Vice-President of Eurogroup for Animals, Brussels.
“Every day there is a new confirmation of how destructive, inefficient, wasteful, cruel and unhealthy the industrial agricultural machine is. We need a total rethink of our food and farming systems before it’s too late.”
“Factory farming to provide ‘cheap’ meat is not only the biggest cause of animal cruelty on the planet, it is also a major driver of wildlife declines. It causes deforestation, soil erosion, marine pollution dead zones and drives species as diverse as jaguars, elephants and penguins to the brink of extinction.”
Philip is currently at the United Nations in Nairobi, where he is privileged to be speaking at the UN Environment Assembly. Philip is using this important platform to call for the world’s leaders to come together and work toward a Global Agreement to replace factory farming with a regenerative food system.
