Organisation's Commitments Toward Sustainability

  • How will your organisation promote the RSPO internally and to other stakeholders?
    General Mills supports the principles of the Round Table for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) and RSPO efforts to encourage and certify sustainable palm oil production practices. To reinforce those principles, in the near term, General Mills purchases palm oil only from RSPO members. In our communications with stakeholders (i.e. suppliers, NGOs) we will also communicate our RSPO membership status.
  • 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?
    General Mills is committed to working with stakeholders to make progress towards more sustainable palm production, including NGOâ??s and other interested parties on this and other sustainability topics.
  • Where relevant, how will your organisation work towards implementing the RSPO Principles and Criteria or assessing supplier performance against these criteria?
    General Mills will purchase palm oil from RSPO members, and will strive to purchase 100% sustainable palm oil by 2015.
