Why Protein PACT?
The North American Meat Institute and partners across animal protein are uniting in the Protein PACT (For the People, Animals and Climate of Tomorrow). The first-ever joint effort to accelerate the entire animal protein sector’s progress toward global sustainable development goals for healthy people, healthy animals, healthy communities, and a healthy environment.
To achieve the Protein PACT vision, NAMI members are establishing transparent baselines and benchmarks for our efforts, setting ambitious targets for continuous improvement, collecting data to verify and transparently report on progress, and launching comprehensive communications about animal protein’s unique place in sustainable, healthy diets.
What’s My Part?
The Meat Institute debuted metrics and targets to drive industrywide continuous improvement in the fall of 2021. Starting in July 2022, Members will be asked to make and report on public commitments in each focus area. Industry-wide communications efforts aimed at consumers will showcase progress and the tools driving advancements.Learn How to Participate
Meeting our ambitious goals will require advanced resources and technologies throughout the industry, and NAMI members will depend on a variety of suppliers to deliver the solutions that will help drive positive impacts including for waste reduction, greenhouse gas emissions measurement and mitigation, worker safety, animal handling, pathogen reduction, and nutrition. Many suppliers have become Protein PACT sponsors and more are welcome as the industry tackles these key issues.Learn More
