WTO BACKS EU IN DEFORESTATION CASE AGAINST MALAYSIA

In a major ruling, a three-person panel of the World Trade Organization has voted against Malaysia's complaint about the EU's decision to stop considering biodiesel made from palm oil as a renewable biofuel. The EU has set a target of phasing out palm oil-based biofuel as a renewable source by 2030.

    Malaysia should not booty biodiesel from palm oil as a renewable energy. Any product made whether good or bad should not interfere with the right & demands of our climate.

        This is a significant step in addressing the global issue of unsustainable logging practices and their impact on the environment.

          Cutting down plants is not okay and going the extra mile to label it as renewable? Despicable Good ruling by the WTO

            This ruling could pave the way for more strict environmental regulations in international trade, showing a positive step towards combating deforestation

              It's reassuring to witness international institutions like the WTO taking a stand against deforestation. Such actions reinforce the global commitment to safeguarding our forests and biodiversity.

                Malaysia should drop use and regarding of biodiesel from palm oil as renewable energy .They should go with approved renewable energy rather than doing what they think .Thanks to EU for taking such a bold move to phase out palm oil-based biofuel as a renewable source by 2030.

                  @felix_mokaya Malaysia has to find alternative fuels that are considered renewable and not try to greenwash a non renewable fuel. They can certainly do better in this regard
