1. How can renewable energy help address the global food problem?

    27 September 2022

    The global food system is at a critical moment requiring transformation to overcome significant challenges. Sadly, the world is not on track to achieve SDG 12.3 — and staggeringly, 14% of food produced is lost between harvest and retail, while an estimated 17% of total global food production is wasted. Agriculture is responsible for 30% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions and this is only predicted to increase by 15–20% by 2050.

  2. The Modern Slavery Act: A hard road ahead for the ‘race to the top’

    19 September 2022

    New report finds companies operating in industries known to be at high risk of slavery are failing to identify obvious risks of forced labour in their supply chains or take action to address them.

  3. We need to talk about value

    12 September 2022

    Responsible investor beliefs and practices which demand that the great sustainability challenges of our time fit within existing investment theory is bankrupt. It is the theory that must evolve to support what economist Kate Raworth calls a safe and just operating space for humanity. If the industry is unable to broaden its approach so that investment theory and practice fit within environmental and social guardrails, it will fail to capture the real-world value which must be its goal (and the key to its survival).

  4. What's the TNFD?

    7 September 2022

    The Task Force on Nature-Related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) provides a framework for organisations to report and act on evolving nature-related risks and opportunities, thus supporting a shift in global financial flows away from nature-negative outcomes and toward nature-positive outcomes. This article provides an update on the development of the TNFD and explains why it matters to investors.

  6. Climate disclosures: From voluntary to mandatory reporting

    11 August 2022

    The finance industry is a key enabler of climate action. Through clear and consistent company climate disclosures the finance industry is better equipped to assess climate risk and direct capital flows to limit emissions.

  7. ESG 101

    11 August 2022

    ESG stands for environmental, social and (corporate) governance, which spans a diverse range of issues from climate change, biodiversity and pollution (E) to human rights, diversity and employee engagement (S) to remuneration, board composition, and risk management (G).

  8. Investing in Australian Livestock Agriculture: With strong headwinds closing in, do the risks outweigh the rewards?

    11 August 2022

    For investors in Australian livestock, significant headwinds have begun closing in; a changing climate, the spread of animal borne diseases, the rise of antibiotic resistance, animal welfare concerns, and the growth in alternative protein markets all point to a future fraught with uncertainty.

  9. Impact investing

    11 August 2022

    Impact investing seeks to add value to society whilst also achieving financial returns. It is different from sustainable or ethical investing as it explicitly seeks to make a measurable positive social or environmental impact from the investment. Impact investing in recent years has begun to gain traction, with young investors most notably taking part. This article will explore impact investing, recent trends, and what the future holds for impact investing.

  10. The gap between commitment and reality on climate change

    11 August 2022

    Research by MarketMeter finds that climate risk management is close to the bottom of investment priorities in a sample of 115 institutional investors. This remains relatively unchanged over the past year, despite increased rhetoric by major firms that they are engaging with the opportunities and risks associated with the climate crisis. So is this just corporate greenwashing, or are there deeper issues at play?
