Arnold Schwarzenegger accused of profiting from #deforestation #ClimateChange #Environment

The Independent ..."The industrial-scale deforestation caused by some of the companies that Mr Schwarzenegger profits from accelerates the climate change that he wants to stop. In environmental terms, it's a weaponised contradiction," said Andrew Simms, chief analyst of Global Witness's environmental programme.

A spokesperson for DFA said they are "not aware of any companies from the Global Witness list held in Dimensional portfolios that are engaged in illegal activities related to deforestation. We expect publicly listed companies to comply with their legal and regulatory obligations.

"Anybody with information regarding possible illegal activities should report them to the appropriate legal, regulatory and judicial authorities."
