Greenpeace is campaigning to save Indonesia's precious rain forests and peatlands for the stability of the global climate, the sake of biodiversity, and the welfare of forest-dependent people. The Greenpeace ship Esperanza is in Dumai Port to protest the ongoing destruction of forests and peat lands in Indonesia by large corporations for palm oil plantations, pulp, paper plantations and other commodities.

The rapid conversion of forests and peatlands for oil palm and pulp plantations, and logging, is a major driver of deforestation in Indonesia. The carbon released by these activities make Indonesia the third largest greenhouse gas emitter on the planet. The majority of Indonesia's palm oil exports are destined for China, Europe and India. Greenpeace states that it is crucial that Indonesia's forests are protected from the rampant expansion of the palm oil and pulp industries in order to combat climate change, stop biodiversity loss and protect the livelihoods of forest-dependent peoples. Greenpeace is calling on the Indonesian government to implement an immediate moratorium on all forest conversion, including expansion of oil palm plantations, industrial logging, and other drivers of deforestation.
