We are in a climate crisis. Unsustainable agricultural production of various crops can exacerbate climate change, destroy ecosystems, and endanger wildlife. They can also cause conflicts over land ownership and erode workers’ rights. However, while unsustainable production can have widespread negative impacts, sustainable production is part of the solution. A good example of that is sustainably produced palm oil, which can indeed be part of the solution! Sustainable palm oil is the best alternative to conventional palm oil.
Sustainably Produced Palm Oil
Palm oil is an incredibly productive crop with yields topping any other vegetable oil. Research shows that when palm oil is produced sustainably, with zero deforestation, the plantations can be a positive element in the local agroecological system, even attracting wildlife. The environment, workers’ rights, and the land rights of local people are all protected and livelihoods improved.
