Twelve leading cocoa companies in the world pledge to help Ghana fight galamsey

Twelve of the world's leading cocoa and chocolate companies have promised to help Ghana address the issue of illegal mining known as galamsey which is destroying many forests.

This was announced Friday at a meeting jointly held by the World Cocoa Foundation (WCF), IDH-the Sustainable Trade Initiative (IDH), and The Prince's International Sustainability Unit (ISU) in London.

The companies pledged their commitment to develop an actionable plan to end galamsey which will include a greater investment in more sustainable forms of landscape management.
