Food and Agriculture Benchmark: Investor Guidance

WBA’s Food and Agriculture Benchmark tracks and measures the extent to which companies are contributing to healthier, more sustainable and equitable food systems. In October 2023 the second iteration was published, ranking the sustainability performance of the 350 most influential companies, assessing companies from farm to fork on their environmental, nutritional and social impact.

This resource elaborates on the five key findings from WBA’s 2023 Food and Agriculture Benchmark. Under each finding are a series of assessment questions that investors can use in their stewardship activities. Questions can be used for example in engagement, and evidence from the benchmark can inform the engagement rationale. These introductory questions are meant to be a start, to get investors and companies alike moving on their journeys towards food systems transformation.
