Goldsmiths University in London has recently banned the sale of beef on campus to help them become carbon-neutral by 2025: https://inews.co.uk/news/environment/goldsmiths-university-london-beef-ban-sale-fight-climate-crisis/

Since the Guild has rightly taken a stand on Fossil Fuels, it makes sense to act on the worst of our personal consumption. The beef industry is particularly catastrophic for land use and carbon footprint, and incredibly wasteful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJIZI75QINY

This doesn't mean having a veggie-only uni, but simply sacrificing your occassional burger or beef burrito to reduce your negative impact for the whole world.
