Description
WWF's mission is to stop the degradation of our planet's natural environment, and build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature.
In order to achieve this mission, WWF focuses its efforts on two broad areas:

Biodiversity
Footprint
The first, is to ensure that the earth's web of life - biodiversity - stays healthy and vibrant for generations to come. We are strategically focusing on conserving critical places and critical species that are particularly important for the conservation of our earth's rich biodiversity.

The second, is to reduce the negative impacts of human activity - our ecological footprint. We are working to ensure that the natural resources required for life -land, water, air - are managed sustainably and equitably.

Most palm oil is produced in Malaysia and Indonesia on land that was once thriving rainforest. As global demand grows, more and more forests are being cleared. In areas such as Borneo and Sumatra, rich in biodiversity, deforestation can be catastrophic. Endangered species including orang-utans, tigers, elephants and rhinos are losing critical habitats, pushing them toward extinction. In 2004, WWF helped set up the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), a group that includes every link in the global supply chain, from growers and processors, to food companies and retailers and investors. With the RSPO, WWF developed a set of international standards for responsible palm oil production. Producers that show they meet these criteria are able to sell certified sustainable palm oil. That means companies that use it in their lipstick, soap, margarine or whatever else can make the same guarantee to their customers. Certified sustainable palm oil cannot be grown in place of primary forest or in important conservation areas. Growers have to use the best growing practices to keep soil and water supplies healthy, and to reduce pollution and carbon emissions. They also need to pay a decent wage and respect the rights of workers and communities. The first certified sustainable palm oil came on to the market in September 2008. Today, about 6.4% of all palm oil is certified sustainable. By looking out for CSPO, the label for sustainable palm oill, you'll be able to buy t...

Nous entendons souvent parler de l'impact de l'huile de palme sur les forêts et les espèces en voie de disparition telles que l'orang-outan. Mais saviez-vous qu'il existe des solutions pour produire de l'huile de palme qui ne nuise pas aux populations ou la nature? Prenez 5 minutes pour savoir comment la RSPO (Table ronde pour une huile de palme responsable) fonctionne et pourquoi le WWF soutient cette démarche pour réduire la déforestation et la perte de biodiversité dans les tropiques.

Greenpeace fait campagne pour faire cesser la destruction des dernières forêts intactes d'Indonésie dans le but de protéger les espèces menacées d'extinction comme l'orang-outan et le tigre de Sumatra. Cette campagne a également pour but de soutenir les communautés locales qui dépendent de ces forêts et de lutter contre les changements climatiques, la déforestation étant une source importante d'émissions de CO2. Un des principaux acteurs de cette destruction est la compagnie Asia Pulp & Paper (APP), une filiale du groupe Sinar Mas.
