Companies taking campaigners to court – reckless or reasonable?

May 27, 2016

The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil is being sued by one of its founding companies. Greenpeace Canada is being sued by Resolute Forest Products.

This episode references an article by Toby Webb on the topic, which you can find at:
