The inclusion of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) parameters within the financial reporting and decision-making processes result in responsible and transparent investing. Ketogenic Diet is a relatively new market that can be helpful in achieving certain ESG goals across the globe.

Some companies in the ketogenic diet sector might recognize that good health and well-being play a critical role in developing a sustainable society to which this sector can contribute positively. Ketogenic diets are identified to help consumers in maintaining a work-life balance by promoting a healthier, environmental-friendly way of living, and by educating them on issues of increasing rates of obesity and chronic diseases.

Companies offering ketogenic diet promote good health and well-being, which offers increased access to nutrition, promotes diversity and inclusion, and offers equal opportunities for women and girls in the consumption of products. More significantly, this focuses on adapting to more sustainable and healthier communities.

Leading companies and organizations in the ketogenic diet industry are helping individuals in nutrition transition which is linked with the increasing cases of obesity and chronic diseases like cancers, and cardiovascular disorders by guiding them with proper consumption of ingredients both in quantity and quality.

ESG Challenges

The major challenges faced by the ketogenic diet industry cover the responsibility of labeling all the ingredients used during the formulation of the products, to enhance and maintain transparency among its consumers.

To close this nutritional divide, investors are focusing on investment opportunities to build nutritional and sustainable communities for good health and well-being.
