Background on FAIRR and the Coller Foundation

The FAIRR Initiative was established in 2015 by the Jeremy Coller Foundation. FAIRR is the fastest growing ESG investor network which raises awareness of the material ESG risks and opportunities in global food chains.

The FAIRR Initiative works with over 250 investors representing more than $45 trillion in combined assets to use their power and influence to help global food companies (retailers, brand manufacturers, livestock, fish and dairy producers) build a more sustainable and equitable global food system.  We produce thematic and individual company research discussing the financial impacts of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues, which inform our market-leading collaborative engagements such as the Sustainable Proteins engagement. You can learn more about FAIRR and its recent research and engagements on www.fairr.org

The Jeremy Coller Foundation established in 2002 is the philanthropic vehicle of Jeremy Coller, Chair and Chief Investment Officer of Coller Capital, a leading private equity secondaries business. The Jeremy Coller Foundation is a strategic grant-making organisation with two primary focus areas. First, the Foundation is working to further venture and management education, partnering with Tel Aviv University on the Coller Institute of Venture and the Coller School of Management. Second, the Foundation seeks to address animal welfare, environmental and human health issues caused by factory farming through both grant-making and the FAIRR Initiative. Recent initiatives include the launch of the Coller Animal Law Forum (CALF) and a JCF podcast series Ctrl-Alt-Meat.
