Helvetas Vietnam: Interview with Rik Kutsch Lojenga, Executive Director UEBT
For a new Helvetas BioTrade project in Vietnam, the Union for Ethical BioTrade (UEBT) recently trained local auditors and employees of four companies on the Ethical BioTrade Standard. This is the first step in the partnership with Helvetas. UEBT will continue to support and guide these companies on their way to UEBT membership and compliance with the Standard.
Helvetas used this opportunity for a short interview with Rik Kutsch Lojenga, Executive Director of UEBT. In the interview, Mr Kutsch Lojenga elaborates on the idea behind BioTrade, explains the objectives of the Union for Ethical BioTrade, and discusses the expectations for the introduction of BioTrade to Vietnam, a country with very high biodiversity.
