06 July 2018
Ian Welsh and Toby Webb

Fresh allegations in palm oil supply chains, trends in business engaging with local communities, and Australia moves on modern slavery

This week Aid Environment’s Tim Steinweg talks with Toby Webb about the work of Chain Reaction Research and its new report into shadow companies in palm oil supply chains to allegedly conceal deforestation. Should brands be concerned about fresh deforestation risks in their supply chains? And Erb Institute managing director Terry Nelidov and Ian Welsh discuss trends in how companies approach their social licence to operate, and why it is increasingly regarded as essential. Plus depressing deforestation data, new allegations about palm oil giant Wilmar from Greenpeace, Nestlé’s row with the RSPO and Australia’s modern slavery bill revealed, in the news roundup.
