Climate-Finance-Food Nexus: Navigating Climate Risks and Opportunities
Join us to explore the complex interplay of global climate change, financial systems, and food production. This event aims to provide insights into the livestock industry’s vital role in achieving climate objectives. 

We will introduce FAIRR Initiative’s Climate Risk Tool during the session. This innovative tool combines a global land use model with company-level financial information of the biggest meat and dairy producers, to showcase the magnitude of financial risks that the livestock sector is likely to face under different scenarios of global warming. The findings from the tool underline the necessity for investors to acknowledge these embedded risks and consider the potential for portfolio diversification towards more sustainable, environmentally friendly investment strategies.   

Following the presentation, a high-level panel of industry experts will share their perspectives on opportunities that can be leveraged to amplify the role of this sector in meeting global climate and nature ambitions.
