Greenpeace wins Indonesian Citarum River lawsuit

Written by Brett Mathews

WEST JAVA - Greenpeace has won a lawsuit against the Indonesian government which, it claims, will prevent permits being issued to companies allowing them to dispose of waste in the Citarum River. The textile belt in the Rancaekek district is one of the many industrial areas along the Citarum River – a stretch of water which is now considered one of the most polluted in the world. The area is home to several textile companies including some of the largest companies in Indonesia and Southeast Asia. A number of leading apparel brands source from the area, among them Nike, Gap Inc, Walmart, H&M and adidas.
