Make Aberystwyth the UK's First Palm Oil Sustainable University!

Many of the products used and sold at Aberystwyth University contain Palm Oil, a substance which is produced in predominantly Asian nations and used extensively throughout the UK and Europe. Palm oil has been and continues to be a major driver of deforestation in some of the world’s most bio-diverse forests, destroying the habitat of already endangered species like the Orangutan, expected to be extinct within 10 Years and the Asian Elephant which may be within the next 20 if action isn't taken today. It also has the damaging affect of emitting significant amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, contributing to climate change and impacting on the habitats of many other species around the globe.

By making the sale and use of Palm Oil products at Aber Uni limited to those which are sustainable we can help begin to tackle these problems and save many species from their potential extinction. We would like to make Aberystwyth the UK's first Palm Oil sustainable University by January 2020 and by signing this petition you can help us to make it possible. Thank you for your support!
