by | Nov 12, 2021

Orbitas and ZSL SPOTT held a webinar on their latest data and analysis on how climate transitions will affect the Indonesian Palm Oil Sector December 1st, 2021.

Orbitas presented the findings from its latest climate scenario analysis for the Indonesian palm oil sector highlighting the potential 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, changing consumer demand and corporate sustainability initiatives, while those who do not respond face the prospect of significant asset stranding, increased costs and constraints on their growth.

Zoological Society of London (SPOTT) shared the results of their latest palm oil industry assessment which includes specific climate-related metrics for the first time. The event also included the perspectives of Olivier Tichit, Director of Sustainability at Musim Mas Group, and Vemund Olsen, Senior Analyst Sustainable Investments for Storebrand Asset Management.
