The FAIRR Initiative is a collaborative investor network, founded by Jeremy Coller, with a membership of $60+ trillion assets under management. FAIRR works with institutional investors to define the material ESG issues linked to intensive livestock and fish farming systems and provide them with the tools necessary to integrate this information into their asset stewardship and investment decisions. This includes the Coller FAIRR Protein Producer Index, the world’s first comprehensive assessment of the largest global animal protein companies on environmental, social and governance issues.
FAIRR is a trusted source of data on the sustainability performance of the meat and dairy industry. Please find within the download below, a few of our common regularly updated statistics (last updated: 01/06/2023):
In 2022 our Coller FAIRR Index found half of 60 of the world’s largest meat, fish and dairy producers now invest in or produce alternative protein products, more than doubling since 2019. Seven companies have reported investments in cultured meat, while we see increased interest in fermentation-enabled proteins.
At least 60% of companies source soy for feed from areas at high risk of deforestation and have still not set deforestation targets.
87% of meat, egg & dairy firms (41 of 47) do not assess if their farms are located in water-stressed areas, despite most farms being in regions already suffering from extremely high-water stress, or expected to in future.
Total emissions from global livestock represent 14.5% of all anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. Land use, including agriculture, forestry and other land uses, is responsible for around 25% of net global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Coller FAIRR Climate Risk Tool estimates a $23.7bn total decrease in EBIT compared to 2020 levels of the largest meat and dairy companies, pushing 20 into net operating losses.
