Boycott Johnson & Johnson because their products contain palm oil linked to deforestation and species extinction #Boycottpalmoil #Boycott4Wildlife

Global mega-brand Johnson & Johnson have issued a position statement on palm oil in 2020.

‘At Johnson & Johnson, we are committed to doing our part to address the unsustainable rate of global deforestation, particularly in precious rain forests.’

~ Johnson & Johnson

However, despite this virtue signalling, the brand’s supply chain continues to slash and burn forests and release mega-tonnes of carbon into the atmosphere, and killing hundreds of endangered species. Once these animals are gone – they are gone for good. See research on Johnson & Johnson’s palm oil sources.

In a new oil-palm plantation near Sungaihantu, in South Kalimantan, the skeleton of a tree is the last relic of the rainforest that once was.

Johnson & Johnson makes claims of sustainability including a ‘promise’ to stop deforestation. Promises mean nothing – action is what matters.

Johnson & Johnson has a high ranking on the WWF Scorecard and an RSPO certification. However this high ranking is greenwashing and this mega-brand is purchasing huge amounts of palm oil from two mills that are responsible for deforestation: Peputra Group and Jhonlin.

Hi, I’m Palm Oil Detective’s Editor in Chief. Palm Oil Detectives is partly a consumer website about palm oil in products and partly an online community for writers, scientists, conservationists, artists and musicians to showcase their work and express their love for endangered species. I have a strong voice for creatures great and small threatened by deforestation. With our collective power we can shift the greed of the retail and industrial agriculture sectors and through strong campaigning we can stop them cutting down forests. Be bold! Be courageous! Join the #Boycott4Wildlife and stand up for the animals with your supermarket choices

  1. Thanks for the info. I will no longer buy any products from Johnson & Johnson, though looking at that list I think I’ve only bought a few before.
    Still they’re now banned in our house!
    Keep up the great work x


  2. Thank you for the information. I knew Nestle was a big offender but did not know about Johnson and Johnson. They will be off our shopping list!!
