ISS ESG Foreword Podcast: The Road to Sustainable Palm Oil

The palm oil industry has experienced a three-fold increase of production over the last two decades – the oil and its derivative ingredients are now identifiable in a third of all vegetable oils produced globally, ranging from biodiesel, to makeup, to chocolate spreads. The production does, however, have a significant ecological and social impact – so it is of little surprise that it has attracted so much consumer and investor attention. Tune in to the latest episode of ISS ESG Foreword to hear three of our ESG experts dive a little deeper into this industry and the range of ESG risks that have manifested from it, as well as discuss how investors can respond to these risks within their portfolios.
