Judith Batchelar, Director of Sainsbury's Brand; Gavin Neath, Senior Vice President for Sustainability at Unilever; and Isabella Vitali, Senior Policy Officer for Livestock and Soy at WWF-UK
In this wild and wonderful webinar we looked at the impact that the growing global demand for soya is having on sensitive environments around the world and what businesses can do to tackle the issue.
Among the topics under discussion were:
- The changing scale and nature of global soya production and the issues that this causes both home and abroad.
- WWF-UK’s Save the Cerrado campaign, highlighting impacts of soya production on the Brazilian Cerrado - on its own responsible for 5% of life on earth and currently experiencing habitat destruction at a faster rate than the Amazon.
- Solutions to tackle these issues including sourcing independently certified soya and alternatives to soya.
