Enjoying great food – while impacting sustainability, health and well-being
One of the biggest benefits to Riot Games was that they were able to significantly reduce their weekly meat order. Livestock farming accounts for around 14.5% of global greenhouse gasses, so reducing meat can have a significant impact on the environment. Matt realized he could have a real impact at Riot Games – a headquarter of about 2,000 people ordering 2,500 kg meat a week.
Within one month with plant-based food, they’d cut the order by 650 kg. That was one obvious improvement, but there were cultural changes too. As Riot Games employees adapted to the new menu, they discovered that eating plant-based food didn’t mean being shortchanged on taste.
“Not many noticed the difference, actually,” says Matt. “I took this as a good thing. It’s a way of leading a culture shift without seeming ‘nannying’. Your people are enjoying great food, and you’re also making an impact in terms of sustainability, health and wellbeing.”
