Palm oil debate, lawsuits, agri-tech & sustainability and Scott’s soapbox
Here’s the latest of the podcast series Scott Poynton, founder of TFT (The Forest Trust) and I are doing this year.
In this edition we talked about the demise of the Indonesian Palm Oil Pledge, the IOI vs. RSPO lawsuit closure, Resolute vs. Greenpeace (briefly), why talking to critics is really the best way. We also discussed agricultural technology and what it will mean for sustainable business, both good and bad, and I suggest we buy Scott a new soapbox to stand on.
