The first half of 2010 saw environmental groups score major headlines with publicity attacks on General Mills and Nestle over their ties to companies sourcing palm oil from suppliers that cut down rainforests in Southeast Asia. The increasing demand for palm oil has led to the expansion of oil palm plantations, endangering virgin forests in Indonesia, Malaysia and Papua New Guinea.

What impact does the palm oil issue have on the paper market? Join us on June 3 to learn about:

• the environmental, social and economic effects of oil palm plantation expansion
• Project POTICO, a joint venture between World Resources Institute and NewPage Corporation that creates a new sustainable business model using Palm Oil, Timber and Carbon Offsets
• the importance of supply chain choices
