Extractive Agriculture Investor Dataset

Want to work for climate justice? Organize, protest, vote, and spend with intention. And stop giving your investment dollars to companies that exacerbate climate impact.

What is an investor dataset? Adasina works with Social Justice Partners to create and release data about the behavior of publicly traded companies. We partner with social justice organizations to identify the metrics investors can use to advance social justice movement goals. Where relevant data does not already exist, we work closely with Social Justice Partners to create a new dataset. We then publicize the dataset, integrate it into our own portfolios, and mobilize investors to influence companies and governments to change harmful practices that contribute to systemic injustice. See all of our current Investor Datasets here.


Extractive Agriculture, otherwise known as Industrial Agriculture, is a detrimental food system for both people and the planet. In recent years, this industry has seen a sharp rise in corporate consolidation, giving a small group of companies tremendous power and resources. This agricultural system is one of the leading causes of greenhouse gas emissions, accounting for nearly one-third of all emissions, as well as serves as the primary cause of deforestation. It further negatively impacts Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), women and girls, and local farmers worldwide.

In order to solve this issue, it is essential to remove companies that are furthering this corporate concentration in the global industrial food and agricultural system from the portfolios. This concentration of decision-making power over food growth and distribution poses a severe threat to the entire food system.

Adasina’s definition of Extractive Agriculture focuses on corporate concentration in particular aspects of the industrial food chain, and our Extractive Agriculture Investor Dataset includes corporations that participate in harmful practices associated with:

  • Agrochemicals & Pesticides
  • Synthetic Fertilizer
  • Commercial Seeds
  • Livestock Breeding & Genetics
  • Agricultural Commodity Traders
  • Gene Editing in Food
  • Meat & Alternatives

  • Talk to your financial advisor about how you’re invested.
    Consider excluding these companies from your portfolio or conducting shareholder engagement to urge them to end this practice.


An index is a list of investments. Many mutual funds and exchange traded funds (ETFs) track these lists. As a result, many everyday investors own stock in private prison companies because they are invested in funds that track these indexes (for an explanation of how private prisons participate in systemic racism, see our Racial Justice Investment Criteria below). A sample of these indexes and the major index providers that publish them is below. If you own funds that track any of these indexes, you are probably invested in private prisons.
Dow Jones
Standard & Poor's (S&P)
This list is not comprehensive. Check whether a fund you own holds private prison stock with Prison Free Funds, from As You Sow.
