Some of our latest analysis on deforestation, agri-business, human rights

Hello readers, I hope you are all well and pushing through to the end of the year successfully.

At Innovation Forum, we’ve got two conferences left this year, on Nov 21-22 on how business can tackle deforestation and then on sustainable sugarcane with Bonsucro on Dec 1-2. Both of them are in London and I hope you can join us.

In case you missed some of our recent analysis, here’s a few links to articles, podcast and webinars we’ve published recently.

All are focused on solutions for big companies to difficult challenges in the supply chain. I hope you find some of them useful:
