   Battle over EU ban on ‘veggie burger’ label reaches key vote  2020/10/16 11:34:23 The Guardian
Farmers accuse plant-based food producers of ‘cultural hijacking’ before key parliament vote The terms “veggie burger” and “veggie sausage” could be banned by the EU next week when the European parliament votes on proposals that would also outlaw descriptions such as “yoghurt-style” and “cheese-like” for plant-based alternatives to dairy products. Sales of these products are growing fast but farming and meat lobbyists say the terms mislead people and amount to a “cultural hijacking” of the meat industry. Opponents, backed by major food companies including Unilever and Nestle, say the claims of consumer confusion are ridiculous. They say a ban would also contradict the EU’s drive to help consumers choose more sustainable food and cut climate-heating emissions. Continue reading…

   Net Zero Festival: In conversation with Paul Polman - Climate action in a post-Covid world  2020/10/14 23:01:56 BusinessGreen
VIDEO: Former Unilever CEO offers his characteristically sage wisdom on corporate sustainability in the wake of Covid-19 in a wide-ranging interview with Gavin Esler In over a decade as CEO of consumer goods giant Unilever, Paul Polman became one of the most vocal advocates for a new form of purpose-driven capitalism. He set some of the most ambitious sustainability targets ever proposed by a multinational, and became a high profile backed of both the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement on climate change. The approach was more than vindicated, as sales of products with green credentials soared and hundreds of other businesses began to emulate the wide-ranging approach to sustainability that Unilever had pioneered. Since leaving the company last year, Polman has set up a new sustainabiluty venture and campaign group Imagine, which is working to mobilise business leaders to accelerate action on tackling climate change and gobal inequality. He has also chaired the International Chamber of Commerce and B-Team, is a board member of the Saїd Business School, and is vice-chair of the UN Global Compact.
   'The future isn't something that just happens to us': Why 2021 marks a crucial crossroads for sustainability  2020/10/14 12:47:47 BusinessGreen
Business leaders, investors and policymakers have a narrow 6-18 month window to set a path to net zero or a breakdown of the planet's biosphere, according to Forum to the Future Even before the tumult of 2020, drawing up an accurate business roadmap for how the next 10 to 20 years could pan out would have seemed a fool's errand. The physical and transitional risks arising from climate change, nature degradation, and emerging clean technologies, coupled with cultural shifts and a polarised political backdrop and cultural, have look set to deliver a uniquely unpredictable and volatile decade, in turn exciting and not a little terrifying. Yet since coronavirus crisis crippled the global economy, oil prices went into meltdown, and societies and political leaders grappled with the immense uncertainty of a world plagued by a deadly virus, those risks have come even sharper focus. What does the future of sustainable business look like in this new paradigm? And, what even is the new paradigm?

   Inside the world’s first VR circular fashion summit: 4 key takeaways  2020/10/14 08:30:00 GreenBiz
Inside the world’s first VR circular fashion summit: 4 key takeaways Lilian Liu Wed, 10/14/2020 - 01:30 COVID-19 has radically accelerated the need for the fashion industry to innovate. The second edition of the Circular Fashion Summit bears fruit of this new socially distanced reality. The world’s first virtual reality (VR) fashion summit Oct. 3 and 4 was pioneered by founders Lorenzo Albrighi and ShihYun Kuo of Lablaco , a company that uses technology to accelerate the transition towards a circular economy for fashion, and was an official part of the Paris Fashion Week program this fall. The virtual reality environment was mirrored after the Grand Palais, an iconic architectural exhibition hall at the heart of Paris and home to the famous Chanel shows. Fashion week formats have evolved dramatically during the pandemic — with digital and virtual shows or mixed digital plus in-person elements events taking place. The Circular Fashion Summit continued to push expectations. Participants were able to not just consume fashion content but also discuss, network and learn from others joining from around the globe —as long as they had a VR headset and an internet connection.
