PepsiCo has just released a palm oil commitment -- in direct response to our pressure.
Here's the problem: that commitment is weak, especially on preventing slavery, enforcement, and a plan for implementation. Sign to let PepsiCo know that it can't get away with half measures.
We can win big for the rainforest. And we can win quickly.
The biggest threat to the rainforest right now: palm oil plantations are clear-cutting the rainforest so they can expand. And the world’s largest global snack food company could help end that with one piece of paper.
Pepsico buys staggering amounts of conflict palm oil every week. Unlike other companies (like Kellogg’s and Mars), it is okay with buying oil that comes from rainforest destruction. If Pepsico committed to buying responsible palm oil, it could help reshape the entire global supply chain for the better.
The timing is perfect. Major companies like Kellogg’s have just adopted new palm oil commitments. And a hot new TV show just shined the media spotlight squarely on Pepsico.
Tell PepsiCo: Commit to buying responsible, rainforest-healthy palm oil.
We all have a stake in stopping the destruction of the rainforest. Deforestation in Southeast Asia has made Indonesia the third largest carbon emitter in the planet. The orangutan, the Sumatran tiger, and countless other endangered species are being pushed the brink of extinction. Meanwhile, the remaining forests of Indonesia are storing as much carbon dioxide as the entire earth emits in a year, meaning that allowing the destruction to continue could detonate a carbon bomb.
Victory is more than possible. Working together with partners like the Rainforest Action Network and Forest Heroes, we’ve already forced Kelloggs and Mars to change their ways, causing a huge shift in the global palm oil supply chain. And similar organized consumer pressure has dramatically slowed the rate of deforestation in Brazil. Pepsico is also under increased pressure right now. Just last Sunday, the TV show Years of Living Dangerously devoted the second of two episodes to palm oil -- and urged their viewers to call Pepsico and demand action. It’s been flooded by consumer letters, emails, and online pressure ever since.
Tell Pepsico: The game is up. It’s time to adopt a responsible palm oil policy.
