Olivier Tichit and Ian Welsh
This week: Olivier Tichit, director of sustainability at Musim Mas, talks with Ian Welsh about some unintended consequences of EU’s new regulation banning the import of deforestation-linked products into the bloc. They discuss how the development of “verified deforestation-free” programmes, with third party verification, might be a solution that keeps markets open for imports from higher risk growing regions.
Plus: the high risk of missing 1.5C or 2C warming pathways, concludes IPCC's new synthesis report; CDP's new research shows insufficient environmental impact reporting and disclosure; oyster mushrooms to consume cigarette butts in Australian trial, in the news digest.
And, a preview of what to expect from key panel sessions, and who will be taking part, at the future of climate action virtual conference in June, from Innovation Forum's Natasha Bodnar.
