Processed food companies are highly dependent on the agribusiness sector. They therefore have a key role to play in protecting biodiversity. They also have a major interest in doing so, as the destruction of ecosystems has a direct impact on their business model and the long-term sustainability of their businesses. Adapting practices and changing behaviour is a vital response to consumer and shareholder expectations, whose awareness regarding the environmental impact of production methods and supply chains is increasing constantly. As an investor, Ostrum Asset Management (Ostrum AM) uses stewardship, dialogue and voting policy to curb the most harmful practices and encourage sustainable innovation.

INSIGHTS EXPERTISES
The insurance industry is highly affected by climate change. ESG has become a more global challenge for shareholders, customers, employees, suppliers and communities. Consequently, insurers must consider environmental, social and governance risks and opportunities within their strategies, as insurers and investors. Although they are primarily affected by environmental issues – physical and transition risks – they are also impacted by societal transformation and governance issues. Insurers need to adapt and innovate to remain competitive. This is a key concern, currently and for coming years.
