Impact Performance


Impact thesis

In addition to being a good investment opportunity, sustainable food companies have many positive environmental and social benefits. From an environmental perspective, in comparison to most conventional agriculture, sustainable agriculture can potentially improve soil quality, conserve water and energy and reduce carbon emissions from farming, while maintaining competitive yields for farmers. From a social perspective, the practice of sustainable agriculture improves the chances that a farmer will be prosperous through higher product prices and lower input costs, creates healthier, chemical-free, working conditions for farm workers and produces more nutrient-dense and less chemical-laden food for consumers. As a result of these social and environmental benefits of the Fund, the Manager has become a registered B-Corp and the Fund has become a Global Impact Investing Rating System (GIIRS) Pioneer Fund, underlining our commitment to having a positive environmental and social impact.
