Institute for Human Rights and Business on the Trafigura Tragedy and Food Security

Here’s an opinion piece on an environmental disaster in the Ivory Coast that resulted from poor corporate governance and social responsibility on the part of the Swiss-based commodity trader Trafigura. The author, veteran journalist Salil Tripathi, is the policy director at the Institute for Human Rights and Business in London. He argues that this tragedy holds lessons for Chinese companies which are now investing and venturing abroad, particularly to emerging markets in Africa and Latin America.

Given our discussions about food security, you might be interested in looking at this post on the Institute blog by its Director of Communications Scott Jerbi on “Food Security and the Private Sector”.
