Wilmar International, the world's biggest palm oil trader, announced a No Deforestation Policy. This is the sign of an industry in transformation.
The companies in our Tiger Challenge now have no excuse not to implement their own No Deforestation Policies. We challenge these companies to commit to guarantee that the palm oil they use in the products we buy is tiger-friendly.
That’s the Tiger Challenge.
The need for action is urgent. Forest destruction is pushing the as few as 400 tigers that are left in Sumatra, Indonesia, to the edge of extinction. These brands have the power to create change. It’s time they take the Tiger Challenge!
Mondelēz International is one of the world’s largest food companies, with brands such as Cadbury, Oreo, Milka, Côte d’Or, Nabisco, Ritz, Dairy Milk, Freia and Marabou. Mondelēz has become the first company among the challengers to respond to the Tiger Challenge!
- Mondelēz has announced they will ensure the palm oil they buy does not lead to deforestation- a good first step.
- But Mondelēz does not make clear how they will go beyond RSPO to ensure no deforestation enters their supply chain.
- Their policy also has an unambitious timeline of 2020. Greenpeace will continue to engage with Mondelēz to ensure they fully meet the Tiger Challenge.
