I'm amazed that this has occurred, this is defnitely indicative of the type of positive corporate action that we want to see when we pressure companies to do the right thing.

" Profits acquired by destroying rainforests and depopulating endangered species are nothing to be proud of." ~ Here's hoping they don't back out of this agreement. Signed and noted, thanks, Victoria.

That's a great start! Here's hoping the study is honest and proves the case against palm oil plantations that require deforestation to exist.
