Meer Plantaardige Eiwitten dan Dierlijke Eiwitten ! DE toekomst; steunt dit initiatief;

Established in 2015 by the Jeremy Coller Foundation, the Farm Animal Investment Risk & Return (FAIRR) initiative is an investor network that aims to put factory farming on the environmental, social and governance (ESG) agenda.

Issues associated with factory farming present an iceberg of risks to investors. Above the surface, scandals such as swine flu, avian flu and horsemeat have shown how industrial production methods can lead to value destruction. FAIRR acts as a global collaborative network that shares research, fresh thinking and best practice with global institutional investors, policy makers, academics, NGOs and other related actors.

Clare Richards, Campaigns Manager at ShareAction said: “The trend for ‘less but better meat’ is creating new opportunities on plates and in portfolios. Evidence suggests that plant-based protein sources are better for your health, your wallet, and the planet. Consumers increasingly recognise these benefits; and now this coalition of forward-thinking investors are doing the same. As a result of this engagement we hope more companies will embrace the opportunities presented by this growing consumer trend.”

Peter van der Werf, Engagement Specialist at Robeco said: “The growing demand for meat will put large pressure on natural resources in the coming decades. Robeco identified this as a financial material topic and engages to improve sustainability in the meat supply chain. Protein diversification is an important instrument to that end. Companies at the end of the meat supply chain have an important role to play towards customers and we will encourage them to make protein diversification an integral part of their strategy.”

Ella McKinley, Ethics Analyst at Australian Ethical Investment said: “The development of sustainable models of food production is essential if we are to limit climate change to less than two degrees. Forward-looking companies can move now to encourage more sustainable diets by reducing reliance on meat and growing the market for plant-based protein alternatives. In the process, companies make their own protein supply chains more resilient to future shocks.” steunt dit initiatief volledig voor een betere planeet en een humanere omgang met dieren.
