AP4, together with over 380 Global investors, (managing more than $22 Trillion in assets) urge G7 and G20 governments to stand by the Paris Agreement, to drive its swift implementation and to publicly express their commitment to support climate finance to both mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change.
Initiative for improving sustainability in the meat supply chain
AP4 is part of a $2.4 trillion coalition of 57 large investors which has urged global food companies to diversify their protein sourcing away from reliance on animal proteins.
Seafood Initiative is supported by AP4 together with AP1-3. The increasing demand for fish products has highlighted problems in the industry supply chain, such as poor working conditions, slave labor and over exploitation of fisheries areas, predominantly in Asia. This shareholder initiative is led by the British insurance company Aviva. Letters, listing these issues, were sent to ten companies connected to these fishing activities. The aim is to identify the leaders and the laggers, and to persuade the companies that are laggers to take steps to improve their business.
