Support for Unilever's moratorium on deforestation for palm oil

24-Sep-2008

Wetlands International supports the call of the global company Unilever for a moratorium on deforestation for palm oil. With the call, companies and NGOs dealing with palm oil urge companies to respect this moratorium. The call will also be translated into a resolution for the Round Table on Sustainable Palm Oil (meeting in November 2008).

The call of Unilever also excludes areas were palm oil production will lead to irreversable loss of the soil carbon (like peatlands).

Wetlands International, as a member of the Round Table of Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO),will support this resolution.
