ESG Report

Since 2011, when we developed our original ESG policy and established our ESG committee, we have made steady progress in implementing an ESG framework. We supplement this framework with our report on the ESG policies and practices of the GPs managing our funds' assets.


Established by Coller, the Farm Animal Investment Risk and Return (FAIRR) Initiative believes that a worrying knowledge gap has emerged among investors about the investment risks connected with factory farming.

Through our research, we aim to educate the capital markets, providing information and tools to our global network of institutional investors on both the ESG risks of factory farming and the opportunities in alternative means of food production.
