Dear <<First name>>,

Positive steps towards sustainable palm oil


In the last couple of months there has been encouraging progress towards sustainability in the palm oil sector. Transnational companies Unilever and Nestlé have started publishing detailed lists of their palm oil suppliers. PepsiCo has suspended ties with supplier Indo Agri over labour rights and sustainability concerns. Locally, Singaporean F& B companies such as Old Chang Kee,Tung Lok and Crystal Jade have switched to or have committed to using sustainable palm oil. Read more on Positive steps towards sustainable palm oil.

UWCSEA student Gauri (left) and Yale-NUS undergraduate Regina (right) started a petition on change.org to urge iconic Singaporean brands Old Chang Kee and Polar Puff to switch to sustainable palm oil. The petition gathered over 5000 signatures in the first week and 8000 signatures so far. Image Credit: TNP PHOTO: LIN ZHAOWEI
