Agribusiness campaignpalm oil is a globally traded agricultural commodity that is used in 50 percent of packaged consumer goods, from soaps and detergents to breakfast cereals and biofuels. Grown on massive plantations in tropical nations, mainly malaysia and indonesia, palm oil has been associated with rainforest destruction, threatened extinctions of animals, including orangutans, huge increases in greenhouse gas emissions, and gross human rights and labor violations.focusing on reducing market demand for environmentally and socially irresponsible palm oil products and transforming global supply chains, our rainforest agrobusiness campaign creates the market leverage necessary to improve corporate behavior and make change happen on the ground.

Rainforest free paper campaignthe pulp and paper industry, led by asia pulp and paper (app) and asia pacific resources international l limited (april), a leading threat to the remaining large forest in sumatra and some of indonesia's largest intact peatlands. Pulp from cleared rainforests is made into items such as cheap copy paper, books, tissue and toilet paper and luxury shopping bags that are then sold to consumers in the united states, europe, and asia.ran's rainforest free paper campaign is pushing corporations to support a moratorium on converting forest and peatlands to paper plantations. Working and around the world, our campaign is creating the market leverage necessary to improve corporate practices and transform global supply chains.

Climate & energy campaignclimate change is the single biggest environmental threat facing our planet. Burning fossil fuels pollutes the atmosphere with greenhouse gases, leading to significant impacts on the planet's ecosystems, including forests, and to extreme weather events, both of which hit the world's poorest hardest. There is scientific consensus that we need to cut global greenhouse emissions drastically if we are to avoid catastrophic climate change. Ran's climate and energy campaign has focused on pushing the biggest banks in the u.s. to end their underwriting of fossil fuels, while engaging, supporting and strengthening the movement of grassroots activists.the forest finance program works onthe financial sector to create real change on the ground. We run strategic campaigns with the support of our network, to move banks to stop investing in companies engaged in deforestation, habitat destruction, species extinction, climate pollution and human rights violations.
