In 2009, RAN staff conducted a fact-finding mission in Indonesia where we witnessed the clearing and burning of lowland rainforest by palm oil companies. These companies are blatantly violating the principles and criteria of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). Watch the videos to see powerful footage of the destruction wrought by palm oil plantation expansion and hear testimonies from the people whose livelihoods have been destroyed by the palm oil industry.
Check out the following case studies from Indonesia and Papua New Guinea to discover Cargill’s lasting impacts on rainforests, communities and the climate:
- Cargill’s Legacy of Destruction: A Case Study of a Cargill Owned Planatation in Indonesia
- Duta Palma’s Filthy Supply Chain: A Case Study of a palm oil supplier in Indonesia
(Dutapalma was put on Cargill’s “no trade” list in January 2008 because they did not meet Cargill supplier standards, including environmental policies and actions)
