A senior politician in the UK government proclaimed the ‘societal change’ of more people switching plant-based diets as a leading driver in reaching global climate targets.

MP Kwasi Kwarteng said he believes the surge in veganism is helping the country to cut 78 percent of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) by 2035.

The Business Energy & Industrial Strategy Secretary made the comments to the leading news organization, The Times.

Moreover, Kwarteng admitted the government should ‘accelerate the change’, and praised the boom in plant-based diets as it’s taking place ‘without government legislation’.
