I'm amazed that as an accountancy website nobody has yet commented on the figures?
"McKelvey cited new research from the journal Science that "avoiding meat is one of the biggest things an individual can do to reduce their personal environmental impact". He added that the policy will “save an estimated 16.7 billion gallons of water, 445.1 million pounds of CO2 emissions, and over 15 million animals by 2023”."
Now by my calculations 6,000 staff over 5 years equates to 500 animals per staff member per year.
Over a standard 240 working day year that's over 2 animals per day each just in meals claimed on expenses!
I have to admit to being a fully committed meat eater (unlike my vegetarian 8y/o son) but there's no way I could get through 2 chickens per day never mind cows!
