Pizza Hut's secret

You can help expose the tragedy of deforestation and demand action.

Pizza Hut and KFC are buying ingredients that destroy rainforests -- and they have one of the food industry’s worst policies on deforestation.

Tell Pizza Hut and KFC to commit to zero deforestation!

A,

Magnificent rainforests in Asia and South America are being slashed and set ablaze to produce palm oil, soy, beef and paper -- driving out the precious orangutans, pygmy elephants, and other endangered animals who call those trees home.

But fast food giants Pizza Hut, KFC, and Taco Bell have failed... to take meaningful action against this environmental catastrophe.

Sign the petition to tell Pizza Hut and KFC to stop deforestation in their supply chains!

The restaurants are all owned by megacorporation Yum! Brands -- and with zero transparency and limited accountability, there’s no way of knowing how many forests were destroyed to make your Pizza Hut meal.

We're crashing Yum! Brands' Annual General Meeting of shareholders with a resolution to get the fast food giant to be more transparent on the deforestation it might be causing. By signing this petition, you’ll help pile even more pressure on the corporation -- and prove that this is an issue that the public and their customers across the world feel strongly about.

Your signature on a huge SumOfUs petition could tip the balance, and encourage enough shareholders to vote for our proposal, and change Yum’s behaviour for good!

You and I could force the industry laggards to get with the times, so Pizza Hut and KFC can’t keep looking the other way as forests are destroyed for cheap palm oil and soy.

Tell Pizza Hut, KFC and Taco Bell to step up their anti-deforestation game.

In its official sustainability policy, Yum! Brands bragged that by 2017, 100 percent of its palm oil would be sustainably sourced. Did that happen? Nope. Has it happened by now? Nobody knows.

Unlike most other leading brands, Pizza Hut and KFC’s mother company hasn’t made the names of its palm oil suppliers available to the public. The same goes for the timber used in its paper packaging, which Yum! claims will be sustainably sourced by 2020. And what about beef and soybeans, two other huge sources of deforestation and contributors to climate change? The fast food giant isn’t even bothering to set goals for those right now.

We need to push the corporations to do better, before it’s too late for the rainforests and everyone who depends on them.

Tell Pizza Hut, KFC and Taco Bell to get deforestation out of their restaurants!

SumOfUs members like you have already helped save countless hectares of rainforests from destruction in the past year. Thousands of you pushed chocolate maker Lindt to catch up to the rest of the industry and publish an anti-deforestation action plan for its cocoa. And you got the RSPO, the world’s largest palm oil sustainability authority, to sanction palm oil villain Indofood over its multiple environmental and labour abuses.

Together, we can show Pizza Hut, KFC, and Taco Bell that deforestation is just as bad for business as it is for endangered species, local communities, and the climate. But we’re going to have to make a lot of noise for the multi-billion-dollar corporation to start listening seriously.

If thousands of you show Yum! Brands you’re paying attention now, next month’s shareholder proposal will have a massive impact.

Tell Pizza Hut, KFC and Taco Bell to commit to anti-deforestation throughout their palm oil, beef, soy, and paper supply chains!

Thanks for all that you do,
Rebecca, Fatah and the team at SumOfUs
