Overview

FAIRR Summary

The FAIRR Initiative is a collaborative investor network, founded by Jeremy Coller, with over 400 members representing more than $70 trillion of Assets Under Management, raising awareness of the risks and opportunities in the global food sector. Its mission is to build a global network of investors who are aware of the issues linked to intensive animal production and seek to minimise the risks within the broader food system.

FAIRR produces state-of-industry and outlook reports across relevant sustainability themes, underlining their materiality and providing a view on how to tackle the negative impacts of current food systems. The latest reports can be found here.

FAIRR’s subject matter and policy experts can speak to topics across the global food system, including:

  • Alternative proteins [including plant-based, fermentation and cultivated technologies]

  • Antimicrobial resistance

  • Biodiversity [including corporate footprints, regenerative agriculture, manure management, and pollution]

  • Climate risk

  • Sustainable aquaculture [including farmed salmon and seafood traceability]

  • Social risks [including working conditions, labour risks and the need for a Just Transition
