Dutch nature organization Natuurmonumenten wants to reduce its tree felling. The organization will only cut down trees in its controlled areas if there is good reason to do so. And for every tree that is felled, Natuurmonumenten will plant another one elsewhere, the organization reported to NU.nl on Wednesday.
The three large Dutch banks - ABN Amro, ING and Rabobank - are structurally involved in abuses in the palm oil sector. These abuses include land grabbing, human rights violations and cutting down rainforests, according to two reports environmental organization Milieudefensie published on Monday, ANP reports.
According to Milieudefensie, between 2010 and 2018 the three banks invested at least 4.9 billion euros into 14 palm oil companies guilty of 118 abuses in nine countries.
