New framework raises bar on sustainability transparency of meat

FAIRR and GFI launch new first-of-their-kind reporting framework

From plant-based meat to macadamia milk, food producers, retailers and manufacturers can now accurately report on the sustainability impact of their alternative proteins’ businesses thanks to the launch of two new reporting frameworks. The frameworks were designed by the $68 trillion-backed FAIRR Initiative investor network and the Good Food Institute (GFI), an international non-profit reimagining meat production, and are backed by investors and industry leaders.  

FAIRR and GFI co-developed the new frameworks with input from a diverse array of investors, companies and NGOs, including Unilever, Eat Just, Inc., Newton Investment Management, PIMCO, Blue Horizon and the WWF-UK as well as ESG and life cycle assessment (LCA) experts. Following this launch, the authors of the frameworks will work with alternative protein brands that want to use the frameworks to report on environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors such as carbon emissions, land, water and nutrition impacts. 

FAIRR and GFI’s open source Alternative Proteins ESG Reporting Framework for Specialized Companies and the Alternative Proteins ESG Reporting Framework for Diversified Companies provide investors, governments, and consumers with a route to receiving accurate information from each alternative protein business.
