McDonalds, Pepsi, Nestle and other Corporations Impicated in Illegal Sumatran Rainforest Destruction

A Rainforest Action Network field investigation team has documented new evidence of large-scale, illegal rainforest destruction within habitat critical to the survival of the Sumatran elephant, tiger and orangutan. RAN’s research has uncovered supply chain connections that link the rogue palm oil company responsible for the deforestation to major global brands through their shared supplier, Wilmar. The companies implicated include PepsiCo, McDonalds, Nestle, Unilever and Procter and Gamble.

This forest clearance is taking place in direct breach of the Indonesian government moratorium on the clearance of rainforests for palm oil plantations announced last April, as well as the no-deforestation policies announced by palm oil giant Wilmar and other brands that commit the companies to eliminate conflict palm oil such as this from their products.

    The fact that anyone believed a "palm oil giant" supplier of ravenous mega-corporations when they said they'd introduce policies contrary to their profit goals is frankly surprising.

    The type of person who could become in charge of that kind of corporation is not the kind of person who cares about animals or trees or anything else that doesn't put money in their pockets and prestige in their names. 

    History has also shown time and time again that the heads of other corporations don't care about nature either, with the exception of how nature can be transformed into profits.

    Well, they seem to care about nature, at least the nature that they get to enjoy.

  • I wonder if they see palm tree leaves as flowing dollar signs, in the way starving cartoon characters see bipedal hams?

    Their subconscious does at the very least, or at least their actions suggest such
