Indonesia’s forests are burning – a thick toxic haze suffocates half of the country, keeping children out of school and forcing people and animals to relocate. But it didn’t happen by accident and we know who the arsonists are. Together, we will hold them accountable.
Nestlé and Procter & Gamble are doing business with rogue palm oil and paper producers who recklessly burn precious rainforests to the ground to expand their monocultures, steal Indigenous lands, and drive orangutans, rhinos, and elephants closer to the brink of extinction.
The forests are still ablaze so let’s not waste any time and turn on the heat on Nestlé and P&G. We need to make sure that every piece of paper and every single drop of palm oil they use for their products are 100% sustainably sourced.
Tell Nestlé and P&G: Stop setting Indonesia’s rainforests on fire – act NOW
Nestlé and P&G are two of the biggest consumer goods companies in the world and like to praise themselves as sustainability leaders. Both are part of the Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) -- a corporate alliance whose members produce the food and household goods millions of people use every day -- that was supposedly committed to ending deforestation in their supply chains by 2020. We know how that went.
But all their “updated” forest protection policies aren’t worth more than the paper they’re written on. They lack accountability by putting the responsibility on the intermediaries like the oil palm plantations or mills. Nestlé, P&G, and most of their peers have greenwashed their way through this mess for too long.
Our forest risk team has proof that these two companies are sourcing palm oil from producers that are setting the precious rainforests of Sumatra and Kalimantan on fire as we speak. They’re running out of excuses, and that’s our moment to hound their CEOs with this hard-hitting message:
Tell Nestlé and P&G: Enough is enough! Stop setting Indonesia’s rainforests on fire – clean up your palm oil and paper supply chains!
Without enough public pressure on Nestlé and co., these gigantic profit hoarders will simply keep making empty promises while pushing Indonesia’s forests to the point of no return. That's why now is the time to hammer our message home -- and we're asking you to join us, just like when thousands of you successfully pressured Pepsi into radically overhauling its palm oil sourcing policy.
