In this episode, I speak with Anja Bakken Riise, who is the president of Norwegian environmental and solidarity organisation Framtiden i våre hender (The future in our hands).
The organisation, which now has over 45,000 members, has been instrumental in promoting sustainability in Norway. Recent achievements include helping the Transparency Act come into effect; a law giving consumers the right to know how over 9,000 Norwegian companies safeguard human rights and ensure decent working conditions within their supply chains.
Anja and I have a wide-ranging conversation about coffee and sustainability, a subject that I believe is such an important topic in our industry and one that touches everybody, from farmer to consumer.
Music by my uncle Jens Wendelboe.
