Palm Oil Giant Wilmar International To Combat Deforestation Using Satellite Monitoring Of Suppliers

The title of this post is the same as that of an article on The Independent.

This is the first three paragraphs.

The world’s largest trader in palm oil has unveiled plans to use satellite monitoring to prevent further destruction of rainforests.

Wilmar International is backing a project by sustainability consultancy Aidenvironment to draw up a comprehensive mapping database of suppliers in countries such as Indonesia and Malaysia.

It has pledged to immediately suspend groups involved in deforestation or development on peatland, while also working with them to improve their operations.

Both the Independent and The Times, quote Kiki Taufik of Greenpeace, as the announcement being a potential breakthrough.

The Times also says, that Mondelez, who own Cadbury, have backed Wilmar’s palm oil plan.
