Sustainable Food Systems: investment risks and opportunities

This event is intended for an institutional investor audience.

To register, please email events@fairr.org

The FAIRR Initiative is pleased to invite you to join us for a briefing and discussion on Sustainable Food Systems: Investment Risks & Opportunities, kindly hosted by Neuberger Berman.

The food system is under increasing pressure due to population increases and demographic shifts. Rising demand for meat is linked to a range of investment risks from deforestation, water and air pollution, to cancer, antibiotic resistance and obesity. There are also opportunities to be seized from the growing market for plant-based and alternative proteins which have the potential to offer a more sustainable food production model.

The event will be a forum for investors to understand and discuss strategies to address the material risks and opportunities presented by protein production, and to share questions with experts in the field.
