Production of tropical commodities such as palm oil, soy, beef and timber creates sustainability risks: deforestation, peat land development, land rights conflicts and labor norms violations. As governments, customers and financiers increasingly act to address such risks, commodity producers will find it increasingly difficult to continue operating as usual and their expansion opportunities will be curbed – turning land concessions in stranded assets rather than sources of future cash-flow. This should worry investors in commodity producers and their supply chains: traders, food companies and retailers.

Chain Reaction Research (CRR) coalition is Aidenvironment, Climate Advisers and Profundo. CRR helps investors to understand and address these risks. We perform proprietary, in-depth research on the sustainability risks created by commodity producers in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Findings are analyzed and impacts for the companies and their supply chains are modelled and described in concise equity analyst reports. In this side event, we will discuss our approach, our findings and what they mean for investors.
