OUR SUSTAINABLE PALM OIL CHALLENGE
Act now and take the Sustainable Palm Oil Challenge and protect some of the amazing species at risk from deforestation in South East Asia. There have been huge increases in the demand for certified sustainable palm oil but we can all do more to create demand by increasing awareness of the issue. The Sustainable Palm Oil Challenge is a way of celebrating the companies who are already committed to 100% RSPO certified sustainable palm oil, supporting those that want to be sustainable and making it easier for you to pick sustainable palm oil products at home.

WHAT ARE WE DOING?
Chester Zoo experts are working together with partners in South East Asia, right now, to protect the incredible biodiversity that is being threatened by habitat fragmentation and deforestation for agriculture – mainly oil palm production.
What else can I do to support sustainable palm oil?
Chester Zoo experts work closely with their partners to ensure that sustainable palm oil is used as widely as possible, as well as only using sustainable palm oil ourselves. Our dedicated team works tirelessly to promote sustainable palm oil to PROTECT our planet’s wonderful forests and species, but we can’t do it alone. When you take out a membership with Chester Zoo, it allows us to carry on our work to encourage sustainability in palm oil both here at the zoo, in the UK, and all around the world! There are countless benefits to becoming a member with Chester Zoo – not only for our members, but for the future of our planet too.
