A press conference to launch a report on the palm oil supply chain in producer and consumer countries will be convened by non-governmental organizations (NGOs) GLOBAL 2000 and Südwind, with Johannes Pirker attending and representing IIASA.
Of particular relevance to this press conference will be the study conducted by IIASA on whether palm oil can be sustainable, which Johannes Pirker participated in. The press conference seeks to explain why palm oil is used so often and why it can be problematic. Experts from the NGOs participating in the panel will explain the results of their research trip to Indonesia and the findings that have been compiled into a report.
