A few weeks ago, Barry Parkin spoke at the UN Global Compact’s Leaders Summit in New York City. The triennial summit brings together high‐level ministers from different countries, CEOs, and executives from civil society. This year, the theme was Architects of A Better World and it focused on engaging the business world with the agenda of the United Nations.
In addition to discussing cocoa sustainability at the summit, Barry also spoke to Jo Confino of the Guardian Sustainable Business, who was on-site to interview the conference participants. As the site says, Barry discussed how sustainability “should be treated as a pre-competitive issue by businesses. He says that new business models must be built on different competitive principles and sites increased scale of impact as the principle opportunity for collaboration.”
