This report focuses on Equatorial Palm Oil (EPO), which is listed on the Alternative Investment Market of the London Stock Exchange. The authors found EPO had violated local people’s right to their land, had broken promises, used violence and threats, are pushing people further into poverty and have not been made to account for it. The report argues that the UK should create a law that will compel British companies to respect human rights and environmental sustainability in countries in which they operate, or be made to account for not doing so. The report includes a response from EPO.
