WWF Germany Report: palm oil is the most sustainable

In September 2016, WWF Germany’s launched the study “Palm Oil Report Germany: Searching for Alternatives”, which points out that replacing palm oil with other oils is not a solution for environmental degradation.

The study states that replacing palm oil with other vegetable oils, especially soy or coconut ones, requires more land. Thus, it would produce a worst impact on the environment, not just because it would cause more deforestation but also would mean more greenhouse emissions compared to palm oil.

The study concludes that consuming less biofuel and luxury products such as chocolate and meat could be the right way to reduce damage on environment.
