Contribution to sustainable economic and social development statement
We focus our corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities on stakeholders along our supply chain and issues related to our business. Through interaction with relevant stakeholders (suppliers, customers, consumers, employees and local communities) we ensure that Intersnack Group CSR activities are properly adapted to drive improvement (taking into account local conditions) and to generate positive benefits for the company and community. We collect data on environmental impact and performance, establish monitoring principles and regularly review progress. We request and support our suppliers to systematically improve the social, environmental and ethical quality of their products and productions.
|Please state how your organisation intends to comply with the RSPO Code of Conduct. Specifically in the following areas:|
|How will your organisation promote the RSPO internally and to other stakeholders? : |
Promotion of sustainable palm oil goes hand in hand with the production/introduction of sustainable produced/manufactured merchandise either under our own brands or through private label business. Since the market in Europe is more and more demanding sustainable products it is our believe there will be an almost automatic promotion for sustainable oil at the same time.
|Where relevant, what processes is the organisation establishing to engage with interested parties, for example to resolve conflict or to use sustainably produced palm oil? : |
More and more sustainable products are of interest to the retail market/consumers so in that sense sustainable oil will receive a higher demand in the coming years. The increased use of sustainable oil is also depending of course on sufficient availability and the price one has to pay for it.
Also refer to answer in Q1.
|Where relevant, how will your organisation work towards implementing the RSPO Principles and Criteria or assessing supplier performance against these criteria? : |
We have extensive audits of our supplier base over the years where questions are raised/criteria are implemented as to sustainable production, socially responsible business.
|Any other information that would support the application such as what your organisation hopes to gain from joining RSPO and how it would support RSPO? : |
By being member of the RSPO obviously we hope and expect to increase possibilities to sell our products and at the same time increase the use of sustainable palm oil. Sustainable (agri) products are definitely part of our future and it is our pleasure to promote the use of it.
