On September 11, 2018 Chain Reaction Research published a report entitled, “ESG Lessons from Palm Oil for Soy Supply Chain Investors: How Sustainability Risks Can Become Material.”
According to the executive summary, “Approximately 18 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions comes from deforestation. Palm oil and soybeans are two of the four main crops driving deforestation, next to other environmental and social problems. Investor awareness regarding the material risks emerging in the palm oil sector has grown, but soy-related risks are not yet widely recognised. This paper aims to compare the two supply chains and draw lessons for investors in dealing with companies in the soy supply chain.”
