Green Palm Sustainability
The abuse of palm oil in the cosmetics and personal care industry is one of great concern. The industry is linked to issues such as deforestation, climate change, habitat degradation, animal cruelty as well as abuses to the indigenous’ rights.
Palm oil expansion frequently occurs at the expense of the ecosystems in the countries it is produced. For example, currently, a third of mammal diversity in Indonesia is critically endangered as a consequence of the ever expanding palm oil industry.
This is why Papoutsanis is a member of the GreenPalm trading program, supporting sustainable palm oil usage.
