The Congress produced the following statement:
The International Vegetarian Union (IVU) which comprises over 100 vegetarian societies around the world, at its 35th World Vegetarian Congress with 300 participants, calls on the WSSD (World Summit on Sustainable Development) meeting in Johannesburg in August, to take active steps to reduce meat consumption globally. This action is needed in order to reduce the adverse effect of factory farming and meat production on the environment, on human nutrition and health and on animal welfare.
The world's population can then live more healthily on a plant-based diet, scarce global food resources can be fed directly to humans, rather than wastefully to farm animals and water, land and air quality would also be enhanced. - July 12th 2002 -- IVU Council
