About the Index

This Year’s Sixth Iteration of the Index

This is the sixth edition of the Coller FAIRR Protein Producer Index, which assesses 60 of the largest, listed global meat, dairy and aquaculture companies on ten environmental, social and governance themes aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Index is designed to provide financial institutions with best-in-class data, analytics and trends on the protein sector to integrate into their investment decisions and engagement strategies.

The 60 Index constituents have a combined revenue of over $522 billion in 2022. The companies were identified using the Bloomberg Industry Classification System (BICS) and were selected due to their market capitalisation and material exposure to the five main animal protein categories (i.e., Beef, Dairy, Pork, Poultry & Eggs and Aquaculture). Companies assessed in the Index might be replaced if their core revenue-generating activities shift from animal protein production, are delisted or/and other companies become more prominent in the sector.

Communication with companies

We interact with companies at multiple stages of the index production. After we’ve consulted with subject-matter experts, we ask companies for feedback on the proposed methodology. Once we have assessed them against the methodology, companies have a chance to review their assessment. Finally once we launch the Index, we offer companies the opportunity to discuss their performance.

Coller FAIRR Protein Producer Index Process


Why we have selected companies that supply the biggest global food retailers

Companies in the Coller FAIRR Protein Producer Index are some of the most important suppliers to the biggest global food retailers. These consumer-facing companies source their meat, fish and dairy from a range of the companies in the Index and are, therefore, exposed to a myriad of ESG risks through their supply chains.
