Organisation's Commitments Toward Sustainability
How will your organisation promote the RSPO internally and to other stakeholders?
We intend to actively promote our products as containing sustainable Palm Oil as soon as our suppliers can offer it and our membership of RSPO as proof of our commitment to Sustainability.
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?
By only using Palm oil supplied by RSPO members providing a fully auditable supply chain.
Where relevant, how will your organisation work towards implementing the RSPO Principles and Criteria or assessing supplier performance against these criteria?
By the continued use of only RSPO members as Palm oil suppliers and to achieve a fully sustainable supply base as soon as it becomes available and practical.
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?
There is great support in the UK for the principles of RSPO and a sustainable Palm oil supply chain, we are keen to build our future business using RSPO membership and our move towards fully sustainable segregated supply as marketing tools.
