British prime minister jokes forestry plans mean ‘guilt-free’ chocolate

Boris Johnson has joked that one advantage of a new deforestation deal could be “guilt-free” chocolate, as leaders committed to a plan that rewards sustainable producers.

The UK prime minister confirmed that the “landmark” deal had been agreed at the COP26 climate conference.

More than 100 world leaders promised to end and reverse deforestation by 2030. Signatories to the agreement include Brazil, where large swaths of the Amazon rainforest have been cut down.

Addressing the conference, Johnson said that the forest conservation measures being introduced are “not only right for our planet, but also for our economies.”
