This secretly filmed footage shows bulldozers from the Salim palm oil group — a firm that borrowed millions of pounds from HSBC — destroying Indonesia’s rainforests. Take a look and see for yourself.
The video is part of the release of a new investigative report, “Dirty Bankers”, that exposes HSBC’s role in funding some of the most destructive palm oil companies in Indonesia.
HSBC funds multiple shady palm oil companies. Most of us will never have heard of these faceless palm oil predators, but they’re notorious in their industry for trashing rainforests, so HSBC knows exactly what it’s doing.
