All 60 companies are heavily exposed to environmental and social megatrends such as climate change, increasing biodiversity loss, land use change and the growth in antibiotic resistance. Without proactive management, these issues could significantly damage the profitability and viability of these listed companies, as well as the complex ecosystems and conditions critical to global food security.
The Coller FAIRR Protein Producer Index is the world’s first comprehensive assessment of how this sector is managing these critical sustainability risks. The goal of the Index is to help investors assess and engage with companies to ensure these risks are managed across corporate operations and supply chains.
The Index also assesses companies on their exposure to alternative proteins, given the growing market opportunities in this space.
Our findings show that almost two-thirds of these companies (60%) are either not managing these risks or are failing to disclose basic information. The stark results show the urgent need for investors to engage with companies in this sector.
