Pandemic impacts on food sector forced labour risks

This week: The new food and beverage sector forced labour and human rights issues benchmark from Know the Chain is analysed by the Business and Human Rights Resource Centre’s Felicitas Weber. The meat sector in particular is in the spotlight, not least because of stresses from dealing with the pandemic’s challenges, while Tesco and Unilever score highest.

Plus: Oxfam highlights shortfalls in climate finance for emerging economies; potential food sector reforms post-pandemic; Ikea launches product buy-back scheme; and John Lewis Partnership brings net-zero target forward to 2035, in the news digest.

Host: Ian Welsh
