Extracting crude oil from the western Amazon Basin threatens ecologically- and culturally-sensitive ecosystems critical to global climate stability. California is the largest single importer and processor of this fuel. Therefore, brand-name retailers with significant operations in California have a critical role to play in reducing U.S. demand for Amazon crude.

Companies should cut their reliance on dirty fuel sources to further their own sustainability objectives and to ensure their brand is not associated with the destruction of the Amazon's forests nor with the resulting consequences for the global climate.

A relatively small number of large corporate truck fleets use a significant portion of the transportation fuel produced in the United States. Given that corporate fleets and third-party transportation providers primarily source their diesel from fuel terminals, these bulk fueling stations provide a key leverage point for corporate action.
