Of the 6.4 millions hectares of palm oil plantation in Indonesia, only 2.6 million hectares are sustainable palm oil production area. This data point is becoming a point of attention ever since Indonesia’s hit by one of the worst forest fire crisis in four decades. The intensity of forest fire and the resulting haze prompted a massive growth of campaigns against the use of palm oil. But most of these campaigns are general in scope, and so we felt compelled to dig in and figure out which of the consumer products companies out there use certified palm oil in their products. We looked into America’s Procter & Gamble Co. (NYSE:PG), British-Dutch Unilever (NYSE:UL; IDX: UNVR), Reckitt Benckiser PLC (LON: RB), France’s food company Danone (EPA:BN), beauty company L’Oréal Group (EPA: OR), and also the Swiss food and beverage company Nestlé S.A. (Euronext: NESTS).To subscribe please click here
