Fidelity has huge investments in companies like Bunge, Noble Group, Golden-Agri Resources and Resolute Forest Products that grow, trade or use palm oil, cattle and soy in their products but have failed to eliminate deforestation and human rights abuses from their operations. This means Fidelity has a key role to play in voting for No Deforestation policies at these companies and engaging with company management to make sure these policies are implemented. Tell Fidelity to adopt a No Deforestation Policy!
