green breakfast, Oxford - Wednesday 7 December
footprints in the forest
We were delighted to be joined by
James Hulse, Director, of the Oxford based
Forest Footprint Disclosure (FFD) project at our
green breakfast on 7 December in Oxford. FFD engages with private
sector companies such as L'Oreal, Marks & Spencer and Drax
Power to ask them to disclose their "forest footprint" based on
exposure to five key commodities – soy, palm oil, timber, cattle
products or biofuels – in their operations and/or their supply
All these commodities have the potential to be sourced from
recently deforested land. For the corporate sector FFD offers a
place to collaborate with others to understand the reality and the
options in global supply chains as well as the opportunities that
arise from improved business practices.
To view James' slides, please see below.
The breakfasts start from 7.30 am for
something to eat and drink whilst networking. The speakers start at
about 8.00 am and finish about 8.45 am. There is a lively Q&A
following the speaker with the whole event closing by 9.30 am.
