July 13 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
There is no agreed method for measuring Environment, Social, Governance (ESG) credentials in agriculture and food. How can we address this?
- Please register here to join this event.
OmniAction gathers experts from within its community to discuss the terrible risk that business and finace currently faces – and to explore how OmniAction might support efforts to address this.
According to FAIRR:
- 50% of the largest protein producer companies rank as High Risk, signalling chronic underreporting and poor management of major risk themes
- 70% of total sector emissions – typically within Scope 3 – remain largely untargeted for reductions. Only 18% of companies set a Scope 3 target.
- 60% of companies are yet to set targets for Scope 1 and 2.
- 82% of companies that produce meat and dairy do not disclose how they address water scarcity risks in feed farming.
- No beef producer in Brazil can trace the entire life cycle of its sourced cattle, with current monitoring systems missing an estimated 85-90% of deforestation.
Join our panelists:
- Catherine Chong, ESG and sustainability advisor
- Sarah Blanchard, head of ESG at Prof. Consulting Group and a consultant for International Finance Corporation

We’ll be seeking to update our Charter of Global Food Impacts with the insights gathered.
