Greenpeace And Palm Oil Essay

892 words - 4 pages

Two opposing stakeholders are the small oil palms growers and the orangutans that live in the rain forest. The orangutans lead an arboreal life and live off of a diet largely consisting of fruit. They just want to be left alone to swing from tree to tree and eat fruit in the rain forest. Smallholders are looking for a way to make money and raise their standard of living.

If Girl Scouts of America would work toward finding a way to fund the starting of plantations on land other than rain forest it could save the habitat of the orangutan. They could team up with Unilever, Mars, and Nestle to offer no or low interest loans to fund plantations. Or they could work with foreign governments to offer tax breaks or credits to not use rain forest lands.
