Luke Pollard – 2021 Comments on Amazon Rainforest Plots Being Sold on Facebook

The comments made by Luke Pollard, the Shadow Environment Secretary, on 26 February 2021.

The Amazon is our planet’s green lung and it’s vital we protect it from destruction. Social media companies have a moral duty to ensure their operations are not enabling deforestation and illegal sales of forest.

The Government must urgently act to make sure that UK companies do not trade on the back of rainforest destruction.
