Terra Verde - Transparency in Natural Resource Transactions

Many consumers know they can look for organic, non-GMO, Fair Trade, or union label to find products that meet certain standards.  But there is another trend in tracking corporate environmental performance, that goes deep into the supply chain of natural resources used as raw materials.  In recent years, around the world, advocates for environmental conservation, as well as human rights and labor rights, have been calling for greater transparency as a key strategy to catalyze reforms in the public and private sectors.  This week, there was a major new development on this subject, when the first disclosures by companies were due under a new federal law.  Guests:  Patricia Jurewicz, Director of the Responsible Sourcing Network, Corinna Gilfillan, Head of the US Office for Global Witness and Jonathan Kaufman, Legal Advocacy Coordinator of EarthRights International  Host: Adrienne Fitch-Frankel
