Without the life-giving forests that blanket our beautiful planet, we simply wouldn’t exist. But to feed the world’s ever growing population, there’s an increasing demand for commodities like palm oil, soy, paper and space to raise cattle, which are resulting in these vital forests vanishing. As one of the world’s largest palm oil buyers we’re able to make a positive impact through the adoption of sustainable agricultural practices. To make us accountable to our goal of sourcing 100% of our palm oil sustainably by 2019, we publish all our palm oil suppliers.
Every U helps to save our forests
Forests, they’re awesome. They provide air, regulate our climate and act as a source of food, medicine and fuel for more than 1.6 billion of us. So, we’re on a mission to reach zero net deforestation by 2020.
Saving our forests to save our planet
Working with governments and partners to achieve zero net deforestation
There are a lot of forests to save and we can’t do it alone. So, a big part of reaching our 2020 zero net deforestation goal is by working with governments and other partners to inspire change across the entire industry. Our scale allows us to lead the way, inspiring other companies to a more environmentally friendly way of using our planet’s precious resources.
With your help, and by encouraging the whole industry to set high sustainability standards, we can save our forests and the world.
