Eating for health & planet

Plant-based food

Enjoying more plant-based foods and less meat and dairy is not only good for your health but also helps reduce the environmental impact of our food system.

Livestock farming is responsible for nearly 20% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Reducing our meat consumption is considered an essential component of mitigating climate change.

Concordia University’s Sustainability Action Plan has set a target of reducing its purchase of meat, dairy, eggs and seafood to 30% of its food budget by 2025.

To encourage a shift toward plant-based eating on campus, all our locations offer delicious vegan and vegetarian choices. Our vegan and vegetarian dishes in the dining halls are labelled as such to help you identify plant-based options.
