Microphone Greenpeace on the massive business-model changes required to prevent climate change

Richard George, head of forests, Greenpeace UK, and Innovation Forum’s Toby Webb discuss the main findings from a new Greenpeace report into what companies have been doing to meet 2020 targets to eliminate deforestation across supply chains.

George says that Greenpeace has taken a cross-commodity approach in this latest report as single supply chain campaigns – such as on palm oil – lead to lack of progress on other commodities – such as soy. He argues that it is clear that many companies have found that ending deforestation is more complicated than they at first thought, and that many big commodity buyers need to act now to make the big changes in their business models that are required to prevent the worst effects of climate change.
