Symbolic picture for the article. The link opens the image in a large view.

We are pleased to share this new piece of work by Mairon Bastos Lima (Stockholm Environment Institute) and Almut Schilling-Vacaflor on supply chain divergence, that is, how exporters arrange themselves to ‘divide and conquer’ and, thus, skirt around human rights and environmental due diligence regulations, catering to different importer requirements. We utilize data from Trase – Intelligence for sustainable trade as well as qualitative interviews on the case of Brazil’s soy sector. This has significant implications for the effectiveness of the new due diligence policies coming into place. The whole piece is open-access on this link: .
