Weekly podcast: putting real numbers on supply chain risks

10 May 2018
Ian Welsh and Toby Webb

Why there’s big money at stake by ignoring sustainability risks, and viscose and deforestation, plus more certification bashing and consumer (non) engagement in the news round up

This week, Gabriel Thoumi, head of capital markets at Climate Advisers, outlines to Toby Webb the financial risks that big companies in the agricultural commodities sector, and others, are running by not dealing with environmental and social risks in supply chains properly. Nicole Rycroft from Canopy talks with Ian Welsh about the linkages between forest ecosystems, textile manufacturing and apparel supply chains. Plus new research that’s highly critical of certification schemes, UK consumers uninspired by food waste reduction scheme, and why Indonesia’s move to export more palm oil to China might be bad news for tropical forests, in the news roundup.
