Greenpeace has new evidence proving that Sinar Mas continues to destroy peatlands and rainforests, pushing orang-utans closer to the brink of extinction and accelerating climate change.

New Evidence: Sinar Mas Rainforest and Peatland destruction

Sinar Mas is the largest palm oil producer in Indonesia, supplying many food and cosmetic companies worldwide, including Nestlé via traders like Cargill. It has a long history of breaking its environmental commitments, both in the
palm oil and the pulp and paper-sector.

Greenpeace has new evidence from the field, showing that Sinar Mas continued to clear peatlands and orang-utan habitat in its PT ALM concession, despite its commitment to stop (see satellite images and photographs on pages 3 and 4).
