Cargill: Stop Destroying Rainforests, Communities, and Our Global Climate!

Cargill, the largest supplier of palm oil from Southeast Asia and the Pacific to the United States, is destroying tropical rainforests, displacing forest-dependent communities, and accelerating global climate change for its palm oil plantations.

The impacts of Cargill and its suppliers' plantations in tropical rainforest countries around the world are severe. For instance, the clearing and burning of rainforests leads to loss of critical habitat for endangered species like the orangutan and the displacement of Indigenous people and small farmers.

Sign our petition to call on Cargill to adopt and implement an overarching palm oil policy to fully address these issues. It's time Cargill took steps to protect rainforests, rainforest communities, and our climate.

Letter to
Cargill CEO Gregory Page
I'm writing to urge Cargill to stop destroying tropical rainforests, displacing forest-dependent communities, and accelerating global climate change for palm oil plantations.

I'm very concerned about the ongoing impacts caused by Cargill and its suppliers' plantations in tropical rainforest countries around the world, especially the clearing and burning of rainforests, which leads to loss of critical habitat for endangered species like the orangutan and the displacement of Indigenous people and small farmers.

Therefore, I am calling on Cargill to adopt and implement an overarching global palm oil policy to fully address these and other related issues, to minimize the company's social and environmental footprint around the world, and to make Cargill a leader in protecting forests, forest-dependent communities and the global climate. I expect Cargill's suppliers to be held accountable to this policy as well, or face contract cancellations.
