Animal welfare poses a significant but perhaps overlooked risk to investments across a range of industries. Public exposures of practices that don’t meet community expectations can and have resulted in substantive changes to regulation and consumer demand, forcing companies to rethink business models and in some cases, bringing into question the medium to long term viability of entire industries. This session brings together experts who can explain the investment risks and opportunities and why they are occurring, as well as give attendees insight into the sectors that could be the subject of the next big public outcry.
