Clive Stiff, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Unilever Australia and New Zealand

Dear Mr Stiff

We believe that your company’s Palm Oil consumption is a very important issue that needs to be addressed. We also understand that your company is trying to diminish it's use of non-sustainable palm oil in its products but we believe that you can bring forward the company’s goal of using 100% sustainable palm oil in 2020 and bringing that date back to 2017. We ask that you Partner with www.orangutans.com.au/Orangutans-Survival-Information to help your company become greener and so your company could help the survival of endangered animals in the palm plantations. There needs to be a change now.

Palm oil is destroying the earth’s atmosphere, wildlife and natural forests. Palm oil companies deforest 300 football fields of land per hour. With every hectare of forest that is cleared there is over 6000 tons of CO2 released into the atmosphere. Orang-utans are also being hunted before forests are cleared so that these companies don’t get fined from the government. There is a growing number of animals becoming endangered in the forests because of deforestation.

You need change to sustainable palm oil sooner otherwise there will be only 5% of low land forests left in 2025. Using these oils may be a little more expensive but would mean forests can be sustained. Many people’s lives and the chances of species survival would be improved and ultimately you would also be helping the planet. Partnering with wildlife organisations would reduce your impact and improve your practices.

Your Company will be judged on its ability to help the environment. The eyes of the world are watching! Obviously it is time that action is taken by a company with the capacity to help. We ask that you Partner with www.orangutans.com.au/Orangutans-Survival-Information to help you company become greener and so your company could help the survival of endangered animals in the palm plantations. Boost your companies’ popularity in the eyes of eco-friendly consumers. Stop using unsustainable palm oil, so that deforestation can be decreased dramatically. Show the world that your company does care for the environment and wants to help. You need to tell your board of directors that the goal they have set is too far into the future and palm oil needs to be stopped sooner than later.

Yours sincerely,
Connor Sievers

By requesting this action from by Unilever, we can reduce the amount of palm oil that is unsustainably produced and that means that there will be fewer forests being cut down. Clive Stiffs position as chairman and chief executive in Unilever enables him to make the change from using crude Palm Oil. The names on this petition will influence Mr Stiff because he will see how many people are demanding the Kraft foods need to do more to helping the environment.
