The pair met in Singapore at the unveiling of the inaugural Eco-Business A-List, a who’s who of the region’s corporate sustainability circuit, in December.
In this 10-minute dialogue, Lord, a champion of sustainable palm oil over a 30-year career in the sector, talked to Mar, who’s pushing for better career opportunities for garment factory workers, about dealing with activists, blockchain, the era of hyper-transparency and the value of patience.
