Making noise about saving forests

Why have companies not made the progress to match their rhetoric in the past five years?

Greenpeace forest campaigner Richard George debates with Innovation Forum’s Toby Webb about what companies have and have not been doing over the past few years on tackling deforestation, and why simply having good policies and commitments really isn’t enough. Despite hundreds of commitments from companies, George argues that there has been a lack of meaningful change on the ground. The challenge remains to implement policy and work harder to preserve the forests, he says.
