Thousands of peatland fires in Riau, Sumatra - the majority within pulp and palm oil concessions - have caused record-breaking air pollution in Singapore and Malaysia, with the haze extending as far as Thailand. Decades of forest destruction and drainage of peatland by the pulp and palm oil sector – including members of the Roundtable on Sustainable palm oil – have created the conditions for these fires. Greenpeace calls for the RSPO and all pulp and palm oil producers to implement a ban on deforestation and peatland development.
