See attached brief for complete list of data to include - there are six sections. Each section should be designed using a 2:1 ratio.
(The text explainer for Section 4 in the 'design brief' attachment is coming soon).
Palm oil is likely here to stay:
• Global demand for vegetable oils is estimated to grow from an annual 165 Mt now to 307 Mt in 2050.
• Oil palm produces about 35% of all vegetable oil on less than 10% of the land allocated to oil crops.
• Land required to produce 1 tonne of major types of oil:
o Palm oil: 1 tonne = .26 hectares
o Rapeseed oil: 1 tonne = 1.25 hectares
o Sunflower oil: 1 tonne = 1.43 hectares
o Soybean oil: 1 tonne = 2 hectares
Palm oil has significant impacts on biodiversity:
• 193 Critically Endangered, Endangered and Vulnerable species are impacted by palm oil production, including orangutans and tigers (+ 2-5 more examples).
• Palm oil grows in areas rich in biodiversity. Indonesia and Malaysia provide 85% of the world’s palm oil.
Everyone must help make palm oil more sustainable:
• Only 20% of the world’s palm oil is certified as sustainable.
• Policymakers – limit demand for non-food palm oil, produce and enforce policies to avoid negative environmental impacts
• Companies – stop deforestation for new plantations, set aside and properly manage areas important to biodiversity and carbon mitigation
• Consumers – demand sustainable palm oil and hold brands accountable for improving sustainability
