Tell big companies to drop dirty palm oilTake action
The “Final Countdown” report documents extensive deforestation and human rights abuses by 25 palm oil producer groups. Between them, they have destroyed over 130,000ha of rainforest since the end of 2015. It is also the most comprehensive assessment of deforestation in Papua, Indonesia, one of the most biodiverse regions on earth and until recently untouched by the palm oil industry.
These groups are suppliers to major consumer brands (Unilever, Nestlé, Colgate-Palmolive and Mondelez), whose CEOs made promises to end deforestation in their supply chains by 2020. But despite only having 500 days left to make that promise a reality, this document provides maps and data that evidence deforestation in Indonesia shows no sign of slowing down and that the industry has systematically failed to live up to their promises.
