PALM OIL GIANTS ANNOUNCE DEFORESTATION MORATORIUM - EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY - Five of the world's largest palm oil producers have announced an immediate moratorium on palm oil sourced via clearance of potential high carbon stock forests. On Friday, Asian Agri, IOI Corporation Berhad, Kuala Lumpur Kepong (KLK) Berhad, Musim Mas Group and Sime Darby Plantation said they will suspend forest clearing until they have completed a year-along study that aims to establish a threshold for defining what constitutes high carbon stock (HCS) forest. http://news.mongabay.com/2014/0920-palm-oil-deforestation-moratorium.html
