COP27 outcomes: Why the role of business is more important than ever
25 Nov 22
Mike Scott and Ian Welsh
This week: Business and climate journalist, Mike Scott talks with Ian Welsh about the recent COP27 climate conference in Sharm El-Sheikh, evaluating the outcomes and commitments made. They discuss the progress on loss and damage, why commitments on phasing out fossil fuel use were weakened and assess the chances of maintaining a 1.5C warming pathway. There is an ever-greater need for climate adaptation for businesses and clearer commitments from governments, they conclude.
Plus: the US Food and Drug Administration approves lab-grown meat production for the first time; Nestlé to roll out home compostable paper-based coffee capsules in France and Switzerland; cocoa supply row continues in Ghana and Côte d'Ivoire over farmer income premiums; and, critical feedback from COP27 about the conference processes itself, in the news digest.
And, Innovation Forum's Natasha Bodnar introduces the Future of Food conference coming up in Amsterdam in May 2023.
