Thank you for your Good Business Journey. But, you still use +/-600 tons of palm oil per year, & only aim to be certified sustainable by 2015. Borneo & Sumatra are wonderfully biodiverse. Yet they have many critically endangered species, as 300 football fields worth of rainforest is cleared hourly to make way for palm oil! Species like orangutans (+50000 deaths so far), Sumatran tigers & rhinos, and Bornean pygmy elephants are heading for imminent extinction in the wild! Shocking violations of human & property rights of indigenous minorities & small farming communities occur, eg, Muara Tae, where an RSPO member bulldozed ancestral forests. An RSPO member is also partly to blame for the recent smog reaching Singapore. Clear-cutting of rainforests & peat forests makes Indonesia one of the world's largest CO2 emitters & climate change contributors. So, please re-consider your palm oil policy. Please replace it in ALL your products, at least until you can use only certified sustainable.
