Faces Of Food


Why Investors Care About Bees - with Aviva's Abigail Herron

Season 1, Ep. 3

Abigail Herron, Global Head of Responsible Investment at Aviva Investors, which manages close to USD 0.5 trillion worth of assets, are today's guest. We discuss why investors are increasingly paying attention to the financial risks connected to factory farming, oceanic plastic, anti-microbial resistance and the global decline of pollinators. There are significant risks to the way we produce our food that are lurking in the blind spots of the world’s capital markets. Left unchecked, these risks could have potential financial impacts running into trillions of dollars. Abigail tells us how Aviva is working with the financial community to help us towards a more sustainable, well-fed, future.
