Animal rights group Peta has called on energy giant Shell to go vegan for a day on its North Sea platforms.
The organisation wants the super-major to “switch to vegan meals” for Earth Day on April 22.
In a letter to CEO Ben van Beurden, Peta (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) said doing so would “offset some of the environmental damage done by drilling for oil”.
Peta said animal agriculture is “on the heels” of fossil fuels in terms of contributing to climate change and said the move would show that Shell is serious about tackling climate change.
Shell declined to comment.
