On 1 December 2021, ZSL and Orbitas held a discussion on their latest data and analysis on how climate transitions will affect the palm oil industry, with a particular focus on Indonesia.
Orbitas presented the findings from its latest climate scenario analysis for the Indonesian palm oil sector to learn about the risks and opportunities for producers and investors between now and 2050. Depending on the scenario, Indonesia’s palm oil industry could see a USD 9 Billion market value increase for those that optimally respond to climate policies, consumer demand and corporate sustainability initiatives.
ZSL shared climate-related results from its latest SPOTT assessments of the world’s top palm oil producers, processors and traders, including an indicator specific to climate risk.
The event also brought in the perspectives of palm oil producers and investors to discuss these findings and how the industry can better prepare for climate transitions like changing laws, corporate policies, consumer preferences and other factors.
