UNPRI Case Study: A climate risk framework for farmland investments

Aerial view of farmland

We’re pleased to share our climate risk framework case study, as featured by UNPRI.

At the global scale, the threat posed to agriculture by climate change is a humanitarian one. It risks undermining food security, especially in regions where impacts are expected to be greatest. For investors in and managers of farmland, the problem is one of risk and reward: are the risks properly understood and are they appropriately priced?

Through this case study, we provide an overview of the acute and chronic physical risks that climate change poses to farmland and explain how our climate risk framework complements our investment process to ensure we manage these risks appropriately.
