Greenpeace activists unfurled a banner challenging Wilmar International to choose forest protection over forest destruction, within a Wilmar concession. The palm oil sector is the largest driver of deforestation in Indonesia and the vast majority of the forest cleared in identified oil palm concessions in Sumatra during 2009–2011 was tiger habitat. The plantation sector is the chief threat to Sumatran tigers, elephants and orangutans. Greenpeace demands that Wilmar stops laundering dirty palm oil onto global markets and that household brands clean up their supply chains.
