Palm oil production - a $61 billion industry in 2014 - is the fastest growing cause of rainforest destruction today, and rainforest destruction is the second biggest driver of climate change after the burning of fossil fuels.
If it was up to you, your money wouldn’t be used to finance this destruction. But would you know it if it was? Your answer matters, because as Bill McKibben has said, "if it's wrong to wreck the planet, then it's wrong to profit from that wreckage."
Deforestation Free Funds is a search platform that informs and empowers everyday investors. It lets you see if your savings are invested in dirty palm oil, shows you how to take action to get fund managers to implement more sustainable investment policies, and helps you find investment options that support a forest friendly future.
