“Olam on their own aren’t going to solve landscape level challenges. It’s about involving the farmers and the communities, the politicians and the regulators, as well as the NGOs. AtSource has provided us with a great tool to drive our action around sustainability - we need to take this and everything else we’ve developed over the years to address landscape-level challenges, and bring in multiple parties, often with conflicting points of view and needs, and together find a common pathway. Crucially, the financial sector also needs to be part of the conversation to drive change at scale.”
