FAIRR is launching a new Climate Risk Tool for the meat sector based on TCFD-linked scenario analysis. We invite you to join us for a webinar next week to hear all about it.
The material risks created by a changing climate are severe and the global animal protein industry is increasingly vulnerable. But how do investors quantify the risk and opportunities relevant to their portfolios?
FAIRR has developed a ground-breaking tool to help investors quantify the financial implications of climate change on the meat sector. The tool – the first steps towards developing a forward-looking analysis of the meat industry — is based on seven key risk factors, including higher electricity costs, feed volatility and increased livestock mortality.
We will be running two 60-minute sessions on Thursday, 12th of March and Friday, 13th of March, where we will guide you through the model and give a demo on how to use the tool.
- Aarti Ramachandran, Head of Research & Engagements, FAIRR
- Bryan Vadheim, Vivid Economics
- Ed Smythe, Senior Research & Engagement Manager, FAIRR
- Context and background
Physical risks, such as extreme weather events and temperature increases are already impacting the livestock industry. The FAIRR Climate Risk Model is designed as a first step to enhance forward-looking analysis on the meat sector.
- Industry risks
As a particularly carbon-exposed sector, the protein industry is a top candidate for substantial devaluation. Additionally, chronic and acute risks, such as droughts and floods, will increase costs for the sector. Investors failing to account for these risks will mis-allocate capital and investment.
- Assumptions & results
We will discuss how the model will impact the profitability of meat companies due to factors such as protein substitution, demand constraints and rising costs linked to climate change.
- Live demo of the online tool
We will also have a live demonstration of the interactive online tool, which accompanies the model + Q&A.
