Unilever

Despite global retail giant Unilever unveiling a deforestation-free supply chain promise by 2023, according to research by industry-watchdogs, this brand is directly contributing to the extinction of hundreds of endangered species and the destruction of forests in Indonesia, Malaysia and Papua New Guinea.

Unilever makes claims of sustainability including a ‘promise’ to have a deforestation-free supply chain by 2023. Promises mean nothing – action is what matters.

Unilever has a high ranking on the WWF Scorecard and an RSPO certification. However Unilever is purchasing huge amounts of palm oil from five mills that are responsible for deforestation: Musirawas, Mulia Sawit, Tunas Baru Lampung, Indonusa and Peputra Group.

Palm Oil Detectives thinks it is wise to boycott all Unilever brands until they agree to cease 100% of their deforestation activities throughout the world.

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, 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 industry and influence big palm oil to stop cutting down forests. Be bold! Be courageous! Join me and stand up for the animals with your art and your supermarket choices!
