Fast forward to today, PepsiCo continue with human rights abuses and deforestation for palm oil

A 2021 joint BBC/Gecko Project and Mongabay Investigation found that Nestlé, Kellogg’s, Unilever, Johnson & Johnson, and PepsiCo have sourced palm oil from Indonesian companies linked to human rights abuses and have failed to pass on millions in profits to smallholder ‘plasma’ farmers.

A 2021 report from TuK INDONESIA, PUSAKA, Walhi, and Forest Peoples Programme finds that household names including Nestlé, PepsiCo, Wilmar and Unilever and associated global financial institutions and investors continue to ‘turn a blind eye’ to human rights abuses in their palm oil supply chains.

Human rights abuses identified include:

  • the denial of indigenous peoples’ rights, expropriation of community lands without consent
  • involuntary displacement
  • violations of environmental rights
  • repression
  • harassment
  • criminalization and even killings of human rights defenders.

Despite these very serious, long term and well documented human rights abuses and environmental damage, on the ground, major downstream companies continue to invest in, or source products from these plantations ( often without recording the social harms they are causing or demanding remedy for violations.

Tell PepsiCo to stop destroying rainforests for palm oil

PepsiCo’s profit-first palm oil policy is still destroying rainforests.

Meanwhile, PepsiCo keeps on promising that it’s working towards a truly sustainable palm oil policy, making commitments to human rights and zero deforestation. But this new report leaves no doubt: this whole time, PepsiCo’s palm oil promises have been nothing but smoke and mirrors.

Tell PepsiCo it’s time to cut ties with companies destroying our rainforests and exploiting their workers for cheap palm oil.
