More and more companies work together with non-governmental organizations, like Solidaridad to improve the social and environmental supply chains of their products. Producers, buyers and civil society organizations cooperate to improve sector sustainability performance and make sustainability mainstream. Global Round Tables play an important role in this process.

He is a guest speaker at the Global Food Security Conference about Food Security Challenges and Solutions, 5th and 6th November 2012 in Shanghai organized by University of Nothingham.
