Download the document.

Research commissioned by the Changing Markets Foundation surveying 201 respondents from the investment community shows that 82% agreed that climate change presents a material risk to meat and dairy industry-related investments and 84% believe that a lack of mitigation of climate change could lead to stranded assets in this industry. Investors also overwhelmingly (94%) think that reducing methane emissions alongside carbon emissions is important, while 83% think that investors should encourage companies to reduce their methane emissions. More than half of respondents (55%) think that investors are not sufficiently addressing these risks. This survey provides a good insight into what the financial sector finds important with regards to how the meat and dairy sector will address its climate footprint and adapt to increasingly destabilised climate system.
