Dirty Palm Oil

Palm Oil's Dark Side

The palm oil industry claims that it’s greening the environment while engaging in dubious contracts with tribal communities, abusing forests in important areas and creating all sorts of unpleasant scenarios for the environment.

The palm oil industry is one where economies of scale are critical to commercial viability. As such, plantations tend to be large—a minimum of 4,000 hectares (10,000 acres) of oil palm is needed to supply a single palm oil mill, although most plantations are bigger. The need to secure large blocks of land in Malaysia and Indonesia have led developers to run roughshod over traditional forms of land tenure, many of which are informal or customary rather than secured by a formal legal process.

An ad run by Greenpeace a while ago showcased that Nestle products that used palm oil were responsible for the deaths of thousands of orangutans in forested areas.

But that’s not where it ends.

Often it is a single local official who signs off the agreement—an opportunity ripe for corruption, especially in villages where the “gift” of a simple motorbike can win substantial influence, including a land contract. But in even when permission is sought, local landowners may not be clearly informed of the terms of the contact or understand they are signing away rights to their land for 30 years or longer. In its investigation into dealings in West Papua on the island of New Guinea, EIA found a case in where a four-year-old was required to sign a contract—using a thumbprint, since he couldn’t write his own name—to ensure the plantation would remain under company rule for decades.

Producing palm oil on rainforest lands or peat swamp has a tremendous environmental impact. A virgin rainforest tends to store more than 400 tons of carbon per hectare, to an oil palm plantation that stores less than 40 tons of carbon per hectare over its 25-year-life results in substantial greenhouse gas emissions.

That’s only the beginning, what palm oil producers do is now go into swampy wetlands (peatlands) to obtain the oil and this results in a huge amount of carbon from the soil being emitted into the atmosphere.


And, once again, this is not the end. There are thousands of colonies of orangutans who share 97% of their traits with human beings, now living without a proper shelter. Those are only the ones that have survived the massacres of these companies’ doings.

So the orangutans must wait; more than 2,000 are currently in the rehabilitation system. But they are the lucky ones. For every orangutan housed in a center, half a dozen or more may have fallen victim to deforestation, been captured for the pet trade, or met their end at the blade of a machete or the blunt end of an iron bar. Estimates of orangutan deaths range from 1,500 to 5,000 per year, out of a population of only 54,000 in Borneo and 6,500 in Sumatra. (Borneo is divided between Indonesia and Malaysia; Sumatra is part of Indonesia.)

Meanwhile, their habitat continues to vanish as oil palm plantations metastasize across the Indonesian and Malaysian landscapes. In less than a generation, prime orangutan habitat in Kalimantan has declined by more than 50 percent, falling from 55,000 square miles in 1992 to fewer than 27,000 square miles today. Since 1975, the extent of primary forest cover in Sumatra has decreased by more than 90 percent.

Viewing the wild orangutans as pests, plantation managers started paying $10 to $20 for each dead orangutan — a strong incentive for a migrant worker who may earn just $10 per day.

Because of the low-cost of palm oil, it is now becoming the preferred resource of food manufacturers, in particular companies like Nestle that produce large quantities of chocolate. For more information on this horrible phenomenon, check out MongBay News.
