PepsiCo’s Greenwash: All Talk, No Action

PepsiCo’s Greenwash: All Talk, No Action | The Peoples News | Scoop.it
PepsiCo claims that its policy applies to all of the palm oil used to make its products, yet the company continues to allow Indofood—via a joint venture partnership—to produce its products in Indonesia despite its documented systemic exploitation of workers. Right now, workers producing palm oil for PepsiCo’s business partner continue to be denied adequate pay, are exposed to toxic chemicals without adequate protection, are forced to bring unpaid workers to earn meager quota-based wages, and much more. 
PepsiCo claims a commitment to end deforestation, yet just in the last month its suppliers were implicated in the destruction of Southeast Asia’s most important rainforests in the Leuser Ecosystem&—the only place on earth where Sumatran elephants, orangutans, tigers and rhinos coexist in the wild.
