Indonesia Greenpeace and KFC & Facebook and Greenpeace Victory


On the 15th December 2011 last year and following a two-year campaign of mobilising, agitating and negotiating to green Facebook, the internet giant announced its goal to run on clean, renewable energy. More than 700,000 people from all over the world joined to make this possible! Facebook’s message to energy producers is clear: invest now in renewable energy, and move away from coal power.

In addition, Greenpeace and Facebook will collaborate in the promotion renewable energy and encourage major utilities to develop renewable energy sources (pdf).

The following Greenpeace campaign video from Youtube was part of the campaign that saw Facebook take up the initiative.

Now Greenpeace is calling for the giant food company KFC to stop using Indonesia’s rainforests in its paper/cardboard products including its packaging and napkins. Greenpeace is concerned that the increase of the giant will deplete more of Indonesia’s precious rainforests if the company continues to source from Asia Pulp and Paper (APP). It also believes that Tiger population will suffer as a result of the increased de-forestation of Indonesia.

The photos below show how Greenpeace Indonesian activist in a protest in one of the destroyed Indonesian forests.
