In July, IATP and GRAIN released a first-of-its-kind report, Emissions Impossible. In it, our researchers examined and scrutinized the climate plans, or lack thereof, of 35 of the largest meat and dairy companies around the world.  Our research shows:

While global agribusiness giants such as Monsanto, Cargill, Bayer and DuPont are best known for their control over the global seeds, cereals and agrochemicals market, symbolizing the corporate takeover of the food system, an extremely powerful segment of agribusiness remains hidden from public scrutiny: The companies that control the production, processing and trad
