Sustainability dominates the Press Association Media Awards!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Martin Hickman, The Independent’s Consumer Affairs Correspondent has been named Journalist Of The Year at the Foreign Press Associations Media Awards.

His report on the environmental effects of palm oil beat news reports from the BBC, Channel 4, Wall Street Journal and even the Daily Telegraph’s coverage of the MP’s expense scandal.

The report revealed palm oil is destroying the rainforest and is threatening the survival of the orang-utan, yet is still found in best-selling food brands.

The report prompted Nestle, Marks & Spencer, Cadbury and Mars into moving to sustainable supply.
