Background

Established by the Jeremy Coller Foundation in December 2015, the FAIRR Initiative is a collaborative investor network that raises awareness of the material ESG risks and opportunities in global protein supply chains.

FAIRR helps investors to identify and prioritise these factors through cutting-edge research that investors can then integrate into their investment decision-making and active stewardship processes. FAIRR also runs collaborative investor engagements with global food companies to improve performance on selected ESG issues in intensive livestock production.

Founded in 2002, the Jeremy Coller Foundation is the philanthropic vehicle of private equity entrepreneur Jeremy Coller. The Foundation is a strategic grant-making organisation with two primary focus areas. Firstly, 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. Secondly, the Foundation seeks to address animal welfare, environmental and human health issues caused by factory farming through both grant-making and the FAIRR Initiative.
