Greenpeace and our supporters are fighting against the big polluters that pump huge volumes of throwaway plastic into our environment. This must stop. Become a monthly donor today and fight this plastic disaster.
Last week, Greenpeace released shocking footage of clear-cutting in Papua, Indonesia, illustrating just how pervasive the problem has become for consumer companies and palm oil traders. How much land was cleared? An area almost half the size of Paris.
A new Greenpeace report outlines the immediate need for action in halting global deforestation and restoring extensive areas of natural forest. Reversing the destruction of the world’s forests for agriculture is the cheapest, quickest and most equitable option to stabilize the climate and buy time for a just transition to a low-carbon economy.
There's been a major development in our campaign to protect Indonesia's forests. IOI, one of the largest palm oil traders in the world, has just made a significant commitment to protect rainforests. If put into practice, this would address the problems on the company's own plantations and set new standards for the whole industry.
