Published on Jun 27, 2017

Ceres has released a new peer-reviewed resource guide to help investors better understand and evaluate the environmental and social impacts that drive financial risk in the food sector. The tool comes as sustainability shareholder resolutions with food companies rise to several dozen filed in 2017, according to an analysis by Ceres.

The guide, known as Engage the Chain overviews the environmental and social challenges associated with the production of eight commonly sourced commodities: beef, corn, dairy, fiber-based packaging, palm oil, soybeans, sugarcane and wheat. It also provides specific examples of reputational, market, operational, litigation and regulatory risks that food companies may face as a result of these impacts in their supply chains.
