Microphone Why palm oil success will mean not having to talk about deforestation

Anita Neville, senior vice president for corporate communications at Golden Agri-Resources, and Innovation Forum’s Ian Welsh talk about why the palm oil still suffers from negative publicity, despite the progress the sector has made. She outlines how the industry can achieve real traceability, and develop a robust economic model for the future.

She argues that this means ensuring that farmer incomes are improved and helped to ensure that they have options beyond simply extended farms by destroying forests. Neville also outlines how the palm oil sector can progress so that future discussion is not always centred on deforestation impacts.

Golden Agri-Resources was a sponsor of Innovation Forum’s recent sustainable landscapes conference.
