Organisation's Commitments Toward Sustainability

  • How will your organisation promote the RSPO internally and to other stakeholders?
    In 2010 Colgate notified each supplier that the Company would purchase palm oil and derivatives only from RSPO members.
  • 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?
    Colgate's position on palm oil is contained in its sustainability report which can be found online as "Building a Future to Smile About".
  • Where relevant, how will your organisation work towards implementing the RSPO Principles and Criteria or assessing supplier performance against these criteria?
    Suppliers must comply with Colgate No deforestation policy issued in 2016.
  • 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?
    Colgate announced a 2015 target date for purchasing 100% sustainable palm oil. Voiced its support for a moratorium on palm oil expansion in rainforests and peatlands.
