Top 3 Victims of Palm Oil: Wildlife, People and Planet #orangutans

Top 3 Victims of Palm Oil: Wildlife, People and Planet #orangutans

In 2003 the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO ) was established to find ways to produce palm oil sustainably, without harm to environment or local communities. Standards were developed, and certified sustainable palm oil first came to market in 2008; it now comprises about 10 percent of all palm oil produced. A recent report by the WWF shows that producing certified sustainable palm oil can be a financial and environmental win. WWF’s Joshua Levin reports , “Our research found that many firms who switched to producing sustainable palm oil – which is good for people and the environment – reaped significant return on their investments. In some cases, switching to sustainable production was economically transformative for the business. Producers, buyers, and investors should see sustainable palm oil as a serious business opportunity.”
