Microphone Weekly podcast: Why companies simply aren’t doing enough on deforestation

Greenpeace on how commodity supply chains are still destroying tropical forests, Iceland under fire over palm oil and new pledges on plastic packaging from UK retailers

This week, Greenpeace forest campaigner Richard George debates with Innovation Forum’s Toby Webb about what companies have and have not been doing over the past few years on tackling deforestation, and why simply having good policies and commitments really isn’t enough. And, in our news digest: new UK retailers pledges on plastic packaging, questions about a palm oil lobby group targeting Iceland and why forests are vital for Melbourne’s water supply.
