Nestlé Condemns Rainforest Destruction; Pledges 100% Sustainable Palm Oil By 2015

May 17, 2010: 12:41 AM EST
In a press release Nestlé condemned the destruction of the tropical rainforest due to palm oil production, saying that it “views destruction of tropical rainforests and peatlands as one of the most serious environmental issues facing us today.” Nestlé, which is a member of the Round Table on Sustainable Palm Oil called for an end to the destruction and is talking with several NGOs to find solutions to this problem. The company has already stopped purchasing from Sinar Mas – which has acknowledged their role in deforestation – and they are also undertaking an audit of Sinar Mas to address the allegations made against them by Greenpeace for their mistakes. Nestle is also partnering with The Forest Trust to define requirements to guide their procurement procedures to help them achieve sustainability.
