A Dutch city will become the first in the world to ban most, if not all, meat advertisements from public spaces in an attempt to affect climate change.

Haarlem – which is a city about 20 miles west of Amsterdam – will outlaw meat ads starting in 2024. The law would prohibit advertisements for meat in public places in the city of 160,000 people in the Netherlands.

The law was approved by city authorities last November, but only garnered worldwide headlines this week when a member of the Haarlem government officially notified advertising agencies.

"It will be the first city in the Netherlands – and in fact, Europe and indeed the world – to ban 'bad' meat ads in public places," said Ziggy Klazes, a member of the GroenLinks (Green-Left) party that drafted the motion banning meat advertising.

Proponents of banning the ads argue that the new law will help reduce meat consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
