What drives the market for sustainable palm oil? 6 Topics 7 Topics 8 Norwegian Consumer Campaign Goals:

1. To expose the links between palm oil production, deforestation, and social conflicts in Indonesia and Malaysia 2. To reduce the Norwegian consumption of palm oil in foods 3. To make Norwegian food producers demand traceability and transparency from their palm oil suppliers Actions: Survey and meetings with food producers Web-based consumer guide Strategic use of traditional and social media Petition against the use of palm oil in foods Dissemination of background information and palm oil-related news and articles on websites and in magazines Results: Created awareness of the link among Norwegian consumers between palm oil production, deforestation, and social conflicts in Indonesia and Malaysia Annual use of palm oil in Norwegian food products decreased by two thirds between 2011 and 2012

Some signs of progress regarding demand for traceability and transparency, but it is difficult to draw a firm conclusion I believe that prohibition is the wrong medicine. I believe that a ban or boycott can make it more difficult to conserve the rainforest. If Norway bans palm oil it will be sold to other countries. Then it is much better to demand that production is sustainable Tine Sundtoft, former Minister of Climate and the Environment 9 Transformative Change A C A = the way things are B

B = the way things will be C = smaller than you think 10 A Theory of Socio-Technical Change The second order consequences of changes to complex socio-technical systems are often in the opposite direction of the expected first order consequences and bigger Examples: The paperless office more paper

Building highways to reduce congestion more congestion Air travel to expand horizons soul-destroying experience Zero Palm Oil Consumption increased deforestation, emissions because of alternative crops 11 Seer-sucker Theory of Forecasting "No matter how much evidence exists that seers do not exist, suckers will pay for the existence of seers." (Scott Armstrong, 1980) 12

The path towards change Forecasting Predict most likely future Scenarios Explore alternative futures Backcasting Assess feasibility of desirable future Future Future Future
