Event description

As more and more companies and investors acknowledge that climate and social risks are market risks, FAIRR and GFI have launched a new, gap-filling set of ESG frameworks for the alternative protein industry. These frameworks equip both specialized alternative protein companies and diversified companies with activity in alternative proteins with clear guidelines to assess and report the environmental and social impacts of their business practices and their products. This enables companies to meet demands for greater transparency from investors, governments, and consumers. 

In this webinar, join FAIRR, GFI, and a panel of companies and investors involved in alternative proteins to discuss how these new tools will support greater transparency of environmental, social, and governance factors, guide companies towards best practices, and enable comparisons between companies involved in alternative proteins and animal products.

The webinar will include an audience Q&A.
