There are actual news mes­sages that the Ger­man gov­ern­ment has deleted plant oils stem­ming from oil-​palm-​plantations from the law on recy­cled ener­gies (“Erneuerbare-​Energien-​Gesetz”). Equally, the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion in Brus­sels has issued a duty for the indus­try to mark the source of palm oils and other plant oils. Their use (for cars or planes) has not yet been for­bid­den, how­ever. At any rate: It’s a first step in the right direc­tion. To remem­ber: For the Parosphromenus-​project, I signed a peti­tion of many Euro­pean Nature Con­ser­va­tion Asso­ci­a­tions in Bonn in autumn this year. The addressees were the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion and the Ger­man Gov­ern­ment and the text men­tioned the log­ging of the rain­forests in south-​east Asia, the huge loss for the bio­di­ver­sity and the severe prob­lems caused by this for many indi­gene peo­ples and their tra­di­tional cultures.
