Pay as You Eat Meat

European strategy to internalize the external costs of meat


The consumption of dairy, eggs and meat causes damage to the environment in various places in the supply chain, such as climate change, eutrophication and the emission of harmful substances such as ammonia (which contributes to nitrogen problems) and particulate matter. The TAPP Coalition (True Animal Protein Price Coalition) requests  a European-oriented policy proposals to pass on the price of dairy, eggs and meat so that it reflects the actual costs to society and to calculate these for economic and environmental effects for the EU-27 involving two case studies for Germany and France.

Within this project lead by CE Delft, Ecologic Institute is responsible for delivering economical data on product categories dairy, eggs and meat for Germany.
