Advocating change – rainforest destruction

Posted by Peter MUIR


According to a recent report from Greenpeace, HSBC is currently one of the largest providers of financial services to the palm oil industry. The NGO has evidence to show that since 2012, HSBC has been involved in arranging loans and other credit facilities totalling US$16.3bn for the six companies profiled in Greenpeace’s Dirty Bankers report.

Perhaps you would like to act on this? You may wish to sign Greenpeace’s petition aiming to have HSBC stop funding rainforest destruction. You may also wish to investigate further about what action you could take on this issue, which may include the role you might play in destruction.
