Dear <<First name>>,

The last month of 2017 has started off on a high note for us. PM Haze is proud to have presented our solutions to the Transboundary haze issue at a UNESCO convened forum in Jakarta. Looking back on 2017, thanks to all your support, we helped 3 local eateries switch to sustainable palm oil, and we now have 6 brands of RSPO certified cooking oil available in supermarkets (Outreach). We completed our first canal blocking project in Indonesia (PEEP) and we empowered youth to create the change they want to see (BLUE leadership program). 

Looking ahead, we remain strong in our resolve to keep our skies blue and clear. Will you join us by committing your time and support for our activities? 

On behalf of all of us at PM Haze we wish you and family a blessed and safe festive season.

Shopping for Sustainability

A joint tour with our friends at Lepak.SG around a supermarket will open our eyes to pressing environmental issues today, most of which revolves around the difference we can make just by changing how we shop and spend our money.

Choose sustainable palm oil for people and the planet

Palm oil certified by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm oil (RSPO) is widely accepted as haze-free. The RSPO is a non-profit organisation certifying palm plantations that meet audited standards of social and environmental sustainability.

According to a recent report from international NGO Forest Peoples Program, the RSPO “
provides the most robust standard for oil palm certification, although there are still some gaps.” The report ranks the world’s main oil palm sustainability standards (RSPO, ISCC, ISPO, MSPO, SAN, HCS and RSB) on the basis of how good they are at protecting environments, respecting human rights, social values and community’s consent.

A study in early 2017 on the Impact of RSPO certification on Borneo Forest Cover and Orangutan populations found that
RSPO-certified concessions lose 25 times less forest than non-certified ones.  Conserving these forests is crucial as it is the habitat of orangutans and other wild life  in the region. According to RSPO Principles and criteria, certified plantations must protect orangutans and other rare, endangered or threatened species in their plantations. If not, they risk losing their RSPO certification.

Choose sustainable palm oil to breathe easy and do it right by the people & planet.
