Greenpeace response to Nestle’s statement on sourcing Indonesian palm oil

July 6, 2010

In response to Nestle's reaction to the Greenpeace report today, Rolf Skar, senior forest campaigner said:

“Nestle’s concessions don’t go nearly far enough. The company seems to agree with Greenpeace that much more has to be done to stop the destruction of Paradise Forests and peatlands for palm oil, but it hasn’t delivered the kind of action we hoped to see. Despite today’s announcement, Nestle will still be using palm oil from destructive suppliers like Sinar Mas through indirect supplies. The Greenpeace campaign will continue until Nestle has cut the Sinar Mas group from its supply chain completely and become a public advocate for peatland protection and a deforestation moratorium.”
