Forest and peatland destruction, mainly for plantations, is both a major cause of forest fires and the source of Indonesia’s largest contribution to climate change. Greenpeace calls on the Indonesian government and CEOs of big palm oil and paper companies to work together to ban trade with any company that continues to drain peatlands and destroy forests.
