The Grant & Eisenhofer ESG Institute announced the filing of a petition to ban importation of palm oil produced in Malaysia by that country’s biggest, and one-third government-owned palm oil producer, FGV Holdings Berhad (formerly known as FELDA Global Ventures Berhad), due to widespread evidence of forced labor and illegal child labor practices on FGV’s oil-palm plantations. The petition was filed with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the agency within the Department of Homeland Security that enforces laws and facilitates lawful trade.–eisenhofer-esg-institute-petitions-us-government-to-block-importation-of-palm-oil-produced-by-fgv-holdings-berhad-in-malaysia-based-on-evidence-of-child-and-forced-labor-practices-300873707.html
