About The Coller FAIRR Protein Producer Index

The Coller FAIRR Protein Producer Index was established in 2018 to address the knowledge gap in the ESG risks associated with the food sector. Recognition of its value has increasingly grown, as has its impact in driving engagement with leading protein producers and supporting investors in the sector. The Index assesses 60 of the largest listed global meat, dairy and aquaculture companies on ten ESG risk and opportunity factors.

How to apply the Index methodology to your portfolio

The following questions have been developed in collaboration with key stakeholders to align with existing methodologies and address sector-specific issues in the livestock sector. They are based on the assessment methodology of the Coller FAIRR Protein Producer Index and aim to provide investors with guidance and direction during dialogues with animal protein producers more broadly. Please note that the list is not exhaustive and the questions do not necessarily apply to all companies, namely due to the variations in protein types and business models. For current constituents of the Index, these questions have been answered within the company's individual assessment.

This year’s report focuses on four topics that are increasingly attracting the most significant interest from stakeholders of all types, including companies, investors and policymakers: 

  • SBTi FLAG: more accountability for land-intensive companies 

  • Circularity: going further than footprints 

  • Antibiotics and animal welfare: a vital link 

  • Human capital risks: mounting pressure to demonstrate transparency and equitability 

Some 50% of companies provided feedback to their assessments this year, demonstrating an encouraging level of engagement as companies actively try to understand their assessments. There has been a year-on-year decrease in Index companies rated High Risk – from 55% in 2022 to 45% in 2023 – despite methodology changes that have raised expectations of what constitutes best practice. There are not yet companies achieving a Best Practice score across all risk factors, but more are securing a ‘Low Risk’ rank.
