Double win for Planet Tracker in the Environmental Finance Awards 2023

Planet Tracker has been named a double winner of the Environmental Finance Sustainable Investment Awards 2023.

The first report, Financial Markets Roadmap for Transforming the Global Food System, was chosen as the winner in the ESG Innovation of the Year (research) category; the second, Destroying Brazil’s Aircon was voted best Thought Leadership Paper on Sustainable Investing, Latin America.

The awards, which were decided by a panel of judges made up of investors, pension funds and insurers from across the globe, honour two of our innovative papers on sustainable investing and showcase the insightful research currently being undertaken by Planet Tracker within the scope of its Food & Land Use Programme.

Financial Markets Roadmap for Transforming the Global Food System calls for the urgent transformation of global food systems, which could cut global emissions by 20% and deliver over USD 1.5 trillion in economic benefits. The largest combined analysis of its kind, this landmark report analyses over 400,000 companies across 160 countries, covering the whole food system including seafood, to establish a real-world framework for guiding Financial Institutions (FIs) to urgent actions to undertake for food system transformation. 

Destroying Brazil’s AirCon expands on the impact analysis we undertook in No Rain on the Plain, a previous Environmental Finance Award winner (2022), to look at the effects of deforestation on the Brazilian economy and society at large, with a focus on agriculture, energy, productivity, health and transport.

Planet Tracker’s reports have attracted significant media attention from the environmental and financial media including Environmental Finance, The Economist, Sky News, Reuters, Financial Times, Washington Post, CGTN, Sustainable Japan, Deutsche Welle, The Rio Times, Forbes Brazil, CNN Brazil, EuroNews.
