This morning, Asia Pulp and Paper - the world's third largest paper and packaging company - announced that it was turning over a new leaf. It's promised to stop chopping down Indonesia's rainforests, home to the last tigers and endangered orangutans.
Today was a
day I have at times feared might never come, but I’ve just emerged from a
packed press conference in Jakarta for the launch of Asia Pulp & Paper’s
new ‘Forest Conservation Policy’ aimed to end its involvement in deforestation.

While the US voted, the world held it's breath. But although the US elections are now over, voting is still taking place. And this time you get the chance to take part as polling stations open for The Big Dip’im where KFC’s Colonel Sanders will be plunged into a giant bucket of his own sauce. You get to choose the flavour!
Pressure mounts on KFC to stop trashing rainforests for packaging as the campaign spreads across the world. With two KFC national divisions now declaring they will rule out Asia Pulp and Paper (APP), how much longer will KFC's global headquarters hold out against the public outcry?
uploaded a new statement to their website called Sustainable Sourcing and Waste
Recovery. Is this the
start of KFC’s response to the campaign that has seen hundreds of thousands of
people tell them to stop driving the destruction of rainforests?
David Novak - the CEO of Yum Brands, owners of KFC - was awarded best CEO of the year last night at a dinner event at New York’s stock exchange. This won’t be a surprise in corporate circles: after 15 years at the company and releasing his own book on management, Taking People With You, Novak is known for his leadership.
KFC headquarters in the US still has its head in the sand about its links to forest destruction, but Greenpeace campaigners around the world are finding inventive ways to challenge the status quo. This time by speaking directly to the people who work at the company’s headquarters... with cookies.
Greenpeace volunteers and forest campaign staff visited the Canadian headquarters of KFC bright and early one morning last week for a friendly visit. This time bearing gifts of coffee and tiger-themed cookies.
