New Palm Oil Commitment, New Loopholes, From PepsiCo

For over two years we have called on PepsiCo, the laggard with the most influence in the Snack Food 20,For over two years we have called on PepsiCo, the laggard with the most influence in the Snack Food 20, to cut Conflict Palm Oil from its products. With your help we have turned up the heat on Pepsico and the snack food giant has responded by adopting a new palm oil commitment!

Thank You. This would not have happened without you.

The good news is that PepsiCo has strengthened its commitment to uphold the rights of local communities and workers and to identify the plantations where the palm oil used in its products is grown.

The bad news is PepsiCo’s new palm oil commitment falls short as it has a loophole big enough to drive a bulldozer through. Take action today to call on PepsiCo to close the loophole in its new palm oil commitment.

We need your help to make sure PepsiCo closes the loophole in its policy. PepsiCo says that it intends to implement its commitment in Indonesia, but it has included an exemption that left unchecked will allow for the ongoing destruction of rainforests and abuse of human rights by the company that makes PepsiCo products in Indonesia - Indofood.

With your help we will convince PepsiCo to close this loophole and drive the real change that is needed in Indonesia, where rainforest destruction and human rights violations continue unabated for palm oil expansion.

Will you join us and demand that PepsiCo solve its Conflict Palm Oil problem in Indonesia?

Due to the actions YOU have taken we got PepsiCo’s attention. Now, we need you to stand with us and our allies in Indonesia who are fighting for their forests, lives and livelihood everyday.

Join us as we demand that PepsiCo takes real action to clean up its supply chain in Indonesia.

    Why can’ PepsiCo do the right thing and at least"act" like it has a social conscience. Not to do so will cost more than the profit it can make today in the long run.

    The world now knows what you’re doing Pepsico! Its only a matter of time before it starts to hit your bottom line and when it does it will be a slippery slope. Do the right thing by future generations and STOP clearfelling in Indonesia.
