A Deadly Trade-off

IOI’s Palm Oil Supply and its Human and Environmental Costs

Publicatie - 27 september, 2016
Over the last two decades, the plantation sector has laid waste to Indonesia’s forests and peatlands. Millions of hectares have been destroyed for pulp and oil palm concessions at great cost to wildlife, the climate and people.

This Greenpeace International investigative report looks at the Malaysian palm oil company IOI group. Despite policies to ensure that its palm oil supply is free from deforestation, peatland destruction or exploitation, IOI continues to buy palm oil from third-party suppliers linked to serious environmental destruction and human rights abuses, including:

  • Clearance of primary forest and peatland
  • Extensive, likely deliberate, fire
  • Exploitation of workers and reports of child labour
  • Use of state security forces
