Zero Deforestation: The New Norm — Implications for Major Brands

574

Published on

This webinar will provide a preview of the upcoming SB14 Roundtable, which will examine the major progress made in the past two years in forestry and its relationship to climate and human rights. We will explore the supply chain challenges likely to face companies in the coming years as progress is expanded and accelerated on all commodities that impact forestation: palm oil, coffee, soya, beef, pulp and paper.
