The Orangutan Outreach Point of View

We at Orangutan Outreach feel compelled to write this position paper because of the recent sudden and dramatic shift by many groups and institutions that call themselves "environmental" towards accepting oil palms and palm oil as somehow being okay as long as it has been certified by the RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil).

We tend to differ. Certification is simply not the Panacea many believe it to be. Not in countries where corruption is still so prevalent. Oil Palms are in no way the great solution that they are presented to be by skillful lobbyists. So what's wrong? Allow us to explain.
