ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the report "The Impacts and Opportunities of Oil Palm in Southeast Asia," which was published by the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR). The report argued that the claim of western banks and supermarkets to deal with landowners who damage Asia's rainforests are a little more than greenwash. It concluded that legal and political reform are needed to ensure that efforts to make palm oil sustainable are well implemented.
