ESG Evaluation Key Sustainability Factors: Agribusiness

Our key sustainability factors identify the most material environmental and social risks assessed in our ESG Evaluation. We assess the materiality of those risks across the industry’s value chain and reflect them in the weighting of our environmental and social factors. We also provide the quantitative indicators used to assess a company’s performance relative to its industry peers on each of those factors. The agribusiness sector covers a wide variety of companies operating across animal agriculture, arable agriculture, aquaculture, and wild-capture fisheries. Companies in this sector include soft commodity traders, meat and food processors, and fishing companies.
