Greenpeace report investigates no deforestation commitments

1 March 2016

A recent Greenpeace report digs into the progress of 14 major brands towards meeting their no deforestation commitments related to palm oil. They assessed companies based on three criteria: transparency; responsible sourcing, or the practical steps they’re taking; and industry reform, or the extent to which companies are pushing for larger transformation. Fererro and Nestlé came out as “strong” overall while Colgate-Palmolive, Johnson & Johnson, and PepsiCo were deemed to be “failing.” Greenpeace looked in part at whether companies were relying on GreenPalm certificates or working with suppliers, and whether they were able to trace palm oil to the mill -- or, even better, to the plantation.
