This week: Oliver Tichit, director of sustainable supply chain at Musim Mas, talks about what he wants to see from the COP26 meetings, and the challenges of translating outcomes from government level meetings to on-the-ground challenges. He also discusses how the pandemic has highlighted resilience in the palm oil industry, and some solutions that can help smallholder farmers gain access to mainstream sources of finance – a long term problem for a sector characterised by having growers in remote places.
Plus, Innovation Forum’s Hanna Halmari outlines some highlights from the upcoming climate action conference.
And: PepsiCo’s new sustainability framework; Carbon Tracker and Climate Accounting Project report says top corporate emitters are not fully disclosing risks; and, Gambia is the only country on track for 1.5C according to Climate Action Tracker, in the news digest.
