A Korean palm oil giant has been rejected from the world’s leading green certification body in the wake of a BBC investigation. The BBC had earlier found evidence that the Korindo group had been buying up swathes of Asia’s largest remaining rainforests in the remote Indonesian province of Papua. A visual analysis suggested that fires had then been deliberately set to these forests, a clear violation of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). The regulator’s tree logo — found on paper products throughout the UK and Europe — is meant to tell consumers the product is sourced from ethical and sustainable companies.
