Sustainable Investing weekly blog: 10th Dec 2021 (Issue 19)

This weeks top story highlights our recently published thematic research on the wider Agtech space, highlighting the long term opportunities in salmon,  in precision ag/robotics and in ag biotech, plus the long term risks to the Agchem sector. In Electrification, we follow up with a piece on (another) report setting out the case for 100% renewable electricity generation,  plus in Demographics, we examine the importance of population trends and role played by the politics during our formative years on our beliefs and attitudes to risk . We finish with a guest story from our human rights expert on  why we need to watch the increasing human rights concerns regarding cobalt mining. Our last thought highlights some fairly brutal feedback in a Bloomberg article on how some ESG scores are created.
