This week: Andrés Ortolano, FSC Italy chain of custody manager, and Ruth Farrell, textiles marketing director at Eastman Naia, debate how and why the apparel sector is sourcing increasing amounts of wood-based fibre. There are clear supply risks, and they discuss what brands can do to ensure that their suppliers are environmentally sustainable.
Plus: how pandemics are linked to deforestation and environmental destruction, and all Indonesian smallholder palm oil farmers to be certified, in the news digest.
