London’s Goldsmiths University is banning all beef products on campus to combat climate change.

The university announced the new policy on Monday as one of many green policies and initiatives that will be enacted at the start of the 2019 fall semester. The school aims to be carbon-neutral by 2025.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The growing global call for organisations to take seriously their responsibilities for halting climate change is impossible to ignore. Though I have only just arrived at Goldsmiths, it is immediately obvious that our staff and students care passionately about the future of our environment and that they are determined to help deliver the step change we need to cut our carbon footprint drastically and as quickly as possible,” said professor Frances Corner, the university’s warden.

Professor Frances Corner announced the following “major measures to help achieve this ambitious goal,” according to their website:

  • Removing all beef products from sale from campus food outlets by the start of the 2019 academic year;
  • Introducing an additional 10p levy on bottled water and single use plastic cups to discourage use, with the proceeds directed into a green student initiative fund;
  • Installing significantly more solar panels across Goldsmiths’ campus in New Cross;
  • Switching to a 100% clean energy supplier as soon as practicable;
  • Continuing investment in Goldsmiths’ allotment area and identifying other areas where planting could help absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere;
  • Reviewing how all Goldsmiths students can access curriculum options which investigate the subject of climate change and the role of individuals and organisations in reducing carbon emissions.
