Controversy Report: Procter & Gamble’s Irresponsible Pulp & Palm Oil Sourcing
Our new report exposes human rights abuses, and old growth and primary forest destruction, in the company’s pulp and palm oil supply chains.
The investigative report links P&G to clearcut logging of some of North America’s last old-growth and primary forests in British Columbia and other provinces in Canada, and to human rights abuses in Indonesia.
The investigative report draws attention to Procter & Gamble’s risky supply chains ahead of the company’s annual meeting on October 12, 2021, where activists are encouraging shareholders to vote against key board member Angela Braly for her role in failing to address the company’s supply chain issues. Braly’s effectiveness in her role as chair of P&G’s committee on social responsibility issues is in question, in large part due to her dual role on climate denier ExxonMobil’s board.
