Rating Sustainability in the Palm Oil Sector

Chain Reaction Research (CRR) represents a shared brand comprised of Aidenvironment, Profundo and Climate Advisers. It receives funding from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, to conduct company sustainability risk analyses and influence decisions made by financial analysts and investors in the palm oil sector. 

CRR aims to explore whether unsustainable corporate practices and actions have introduced unreported risks – and how or whether sustainability leadership can mitigate those risks and possibly provide competitive advantage. Where possible, we provide pre-IPO checking of claims about risk and assets reported in prospectuses. We also review claims made by publicly traded companies. So far several in depth risk assessment reports and sector trend reports have been published. For further information please contact Annemieke Beekmans.
