Global and Australian food companies failing to deal with climate, health issues

A new study analysing a $300 billion group of some of the world’s 60 largest food companies has revealed that a vast majority are deemed “high risk” and are failing to manage critical 21st-Century business risks such as greenhouse gas emissions and antibiotics.

The new Coller FAIRR Protein Producer Index is the world’s first comprehensive analysis of how some of the planet’s largest food suppliers are managing critical sustainability risks from pollution to the Paris Climate Agreement, from food safety to worker safety.

The new index is backed by FAIRR, a $5.9 trillion investor network, and analysed 60 global intensive farming companies on health, environmental, and social issues.

It found that 60% of the intensive farming sector – made up of 36 companies worth a total of $152 billion – are categorised as “high risk” by the new index aimed at informing large investors.
