19 Singapore Companies Called Up for Checks Related to Indonesia Haze

19 Singapore companies have been called up in checks on the haze in Indonesia by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).

The international organisation has sent letters to 19 chief executives in Singapore asking them how much palm oil they use and where it comes from, in an attempt to find out if the palm oil comes from sustainable sources or if it contributes to the haze problem.

The WWF has said that many companies based here are unaware that they are contributing to deforestation “despite five decades of haze and ongoing engagement by WWF”.

It says that brands should be or aim to be at 100 percent certified in sustainable palm oil use today and show consumers how their sustainability policies help to combat the haze.

The WWF added that Companies that have fallen short of that target should be called to account by their competitors and their customers.
