In this episode Glenn Hurowitz speaks on his pathbreaking work in eliminating both environmental and social injustices that pervade the world’s biggest, most entrenched agricultural supply chains. Glenn is the managing director of Climate Advisors where he has taken the international lead on ending deforestation for commodity agriculture. In the last year, Glenn has played a major role in getting the world’s biggest agribusinesses, like Cargill,  Wilmar  International, and Kellogg, to adopt policies that will eliminate deforestation in their entire global supply chain. We discuss his recent headlines and success and what this means for forests around the world, and also about issues with the industry’s use of the word “sustainability,” and how much we can trust their assurances for change.
