EU Commission: No palm oil in our tanks. Stop subsidising palm oil biodiesel!

Palm oil deforestation is getting worse, ravaging some of the planet’s remaining rainforests and our most precious wildlife.

But most people don’t know that 51% of all the palm oil imported into Europe goes into our cars. The EU subsidises it as a “green biodiesel”. Even though it’s actually three times worse for the climate than regular diesel because of the deforestation it causes.

On 1st February 2019 the European Commission can stop this madness. The EU Parliament had voted to stop promoting palm oil in biodiesel as a ‘green fuel’, but now it’s up to the European Commission to make it happen.
