Investing for Tomorrow’s Environment in Partnership With the CFA Institute

Overview

FAIRR is delighted to announce our partnership with the CFA Institute and Content with Purpose in the investing for tomorrow's environment series. This digital series aims to raise awareness of key ESG risks and the pivotal role finance professionals play in mitigating these challenges. 

As the world undergoes immense change, integrating sustainability into investment decision-making is critical, particularly in the context of intensive animal agriculture. This sector poses significant environmental and social risks, including GHG emissions, deforestation, and water pollution. Additionally, social issues such as labour rights and animal welfare cannot be overlooked. Addressing these material risks is essential for safeguarding both our planet and the long-term value of investment portfolios. 

The series will explore the urgent need to incorporate climate change and natural capital considerations into investment strategies through expert interviews and compelling short films. By highlighting the transition to new energy systems and sustainable business models, we aim to inspire investors to leverage their capital towards a low-carbon economy. 

Our collaboration with the CFA Institute underscores FAIRR’s commitment to driving positive change in the global food system. Together, we can support investors in making informed, responsible decisions that promote sustainability and address the critical challenges posed by intensive animal farming. Join us in this vital journey towards a prosperous and sustainable future.
