UK supermarket chain Iceland has announced it will ban the use of palm oil in all its brands. Is this a laudable or misguided effort in making the industry sustainable?
Out of an estimated 14.9 million hectares of peatland in Indonesia, only around 6.7 million hectares remain undeveloped and in forests, and a peat expert is calling on the government to maintain these at their current state at all costs.
what happens when the culprit is from an advanced country and the main reason for the deforestation isn’t palm oil but the cattle industry? It would seem that apart from WWF the other NGOs that are usually very energetic about condemning deforestation have been rather slow to react.
