In November 2007, Greenpeace released Cooking the Climate, an 82-page report summarising the findings of a two-year investigation that revealed how the world’s largest food, cosmetic and biofuel companies were driving the wholesale destruction of Indonesia’s rainforests and peatlands through growing palm oil consumption.

This follow-up report provides further evidence of the expansion of the palm sector in Indonesia into remaining rainforests, orang-utan habitat and peatlands in Kalimantan. It links the majority of the largest producers in Indonesia to Unilever, probably the largest palm oil corporate consumer in the world.
