In December 2020 the GLP Telecoupling Working Group held its fourth webinar to discuss the challenges and opportunities related to governing telecoupling from the perspective of company policies to reduce commodity-driven forest loss. The webinar included two presentations by Sam A. Levy (ETH Zürich) presenting work on the role of market share on the effectiveness of zero deforestation commitments in the Brazilian Amazon’s cattle sector, and Janina Grabs (ETH Zürich) discussing effective of performative governance in relation to implementation of zero deforestation commitments in the Indonesian palm oil sector.
