Samsung Must End Its Role in Deforestation

Target: Yoon Boo Keun, Samsung CEO

Goal: Samsung must end its role in palm oil farming and the subsequent deforestation of tropical rain forests.

Popular Korean-based electronic brand Samsung is directly contributing to the deforestation of our planet’s endangered tropical rain forests. According to environmental NGOs, Samsung is using some profits from the sale of its electronics, like the Note 8, to fund palm oil plantations.

Palm oil plantations are one of the leading causes of deforestation. One of the palm oil companies tied to Samsung, Korindo, is responsible for clearing over 30,000 hectares of rain forest alone.

Deforestation is causing the extinction of endangered species. It is stripping the rain forests of their resources. It is removing indigenous people from their land. Sign the petition and demand that Samsung end its role in palm oil plantations and their deforestation.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Keun,

Your company, Samsung, has been accused of having ties with agribusiness companies with interests in the palm oil industry. According to environmental NGOs, Samsung even uses some of its profits to fund palm oil plantations.

Palm oil plantations are one of the leading causes of deforestation. These plantations are clearing thousands of acres of land and leading to the extinction of hundreds of endangered species. I ask that Samsung become more environmentally responsible by cutting its ties with the palm oil industry and ending its role in the destruction of our planet’s rain forests.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Deforestation is killing the planet! Samsung’s involvement in this is unconscionable.
    No one should have the right to destroy wildlife and plant life for their greedy purposes.

  2. I agree with the above statement. Demand BOYCOTT of SAMSUNG NOW! Please STOP partaking in the destruction of our planet!
