About this talk

Monitoring share price movements to see the potential impact of changes in customers’ preferences may not be so easy for a consumer, as iconic brands aided by an army of marketing specialists are reinventing themselves and their value propositions. Financial analysts see it more clearly and report that for example, the top 25 US food and beverage companies have lost an equivalent of $18 billion in market share in about 5 years due to consumers’ preferences drifting to more authentic and genuine food experiences. Many ESG issues and increasing disclosure requirements may affect – in positive and negative sense – not only corporate reputation, but also each of the elements of the entire value creation chain…. But as focus continues to be on the fossil fuel industry, do investors still have a blind spot where FMCG and agriculture are concerned? What is the impact of changes in consumer preferences on the implementation of Sustainability in the FMCG and agriculture sectors? Does the dialogue of the FMCG industry with the Financial Institutions help accelerate the implementation of Sustainability and how can this dialogue be improved? What are the risks and opportunities related to animal agriculture? How are Supply Chains managed? What is the way forward? These and many other questions we will discuss with our excellent panel: Maria Lettini - Executive Director - FAIRR (The Farm Animal Investment Risk & Return) David McNeil - Head of Climate Risk, Director - Fitch Ratings Ignacio Gavilan - Director, Sustainability - The Consumer Goods Forum Julia Bewerunge - Manager, Carbon & Finance - Climate Partner Travis Miller - General Counsel - Assent Compliance Moderated by Dana Hanby - Managing Director - ESG Nexus
