It’s been 100+ days since P&G’s historic shareholder vote on forests — but there’s still no news on what the company plans to do about its forest destruction

The world’s largest consumer goods company continues to fail to address concerns over its deforestation and forest degradation in the boreal forest of Canada and tropical forests of Indonesia and Malaysia.

Procter & Gamble’s shareholders, including some of the world’s largest asset managers, delivered a clear rebuke of business as usual. And yet, the company continues the same practices that led to the stunning vote: making tissue products from critical primary forests and sourcing palm oil tied to land rights violations and other human rights abuses.


Every day of inaction from P&G means more forest destruction, more human rights violations, more habitat loss, and ultimately, more financial risk. Now is the time for P&G to lead.
