Organisation's Commitments Toward Sustainability

  • How will your organisation promote the RSPO internally and to other stakeholders?
    By becoming an Ordinary Member of RSPO we will inform our customers, suppliers and business partners and also our employees about our commitment. The effect of combining business activity and the idea of sustainable development is the RSPO certificate granted to the company, which allows balanced consumption of raw materials on the basis of certified palm oil, and tracking them within the supply chain. Employees of the Company, engaged in various activities and participate in many conferences, meetings and training relating to promoting and implementing the concept of business ethics. The company's operations relating to development, innovation and expansion to new, international markets, are aimed at promoting business ethics based on the developed Code of Ethics for employees and stakeholders, in particular suppliers of raw materials and services.
  • 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?
    PCC EXOL SA understands, how much it is important that all links in the supply chain concerning the production and processing of palm oil, starting from plantations and ending with the end user cooperate with each other, mutually support each other and work in an environmentally and socially responsible way. PCC EXOL SA continuously promotes the principles of sustainable palm oil when dealing with industry associations, NGOs or other stakeholders. Our goal is to capitalize on the institutional framework of the RSPO to effect change. Through its relationships with all relevant stakeholders PCC EXOL SA will continuously support sustainability improvements in the palm supply chain. We support the idea of sustainable palm oil production and the dialogue initiated by the RSPO organization that has developed, implemented and promotes basic, global standard of sustainable development in relation to the products made from the palm oil. PCC EXOL SA will support the efforts of RSPO in further improvement of mechanisms supporting the sustainable production of palm oil and its processing in the entire supply chain.
  • Where relevant, how will your organisation work towards implementing the RSPO Principles and Criteria or assessing supplier performance against these criteria?
    PCC Exol will advise to it's suppliers to participate and sign-up to the principles developed by RSPO. We will continue to partner with palm oil suppliers and our customers to implement the use of certified palm oil and products through the entire value chain. Since in the manufacture of our products we buy raw materials, which are derivatives of the palm oil, we pay special attention that our partners share our values, which comprise RSPO Principles and Criteria. PCC EXOL SA is willing to cooperate with all stakeholders in the supply chain of palm oil and its derivatives, by committing them to development of raw material traceability strategy in accordance with the principles and criteria of RSPO. In 2014, the Company has implemented the Code of Conduct for Suppliers, under which all suppliers are obliged to conduct their business in accordance with the rules of fair competition, respect for the environment, human rights and safety applicable to both the protection of life and health of people as well as procedural safety.
  • 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?
    PCC EXOL SA believes that the production of chemicals, including the surfactants, from which a large number of consumer goods is produced, should be carried out in a sustainable manner, taking into account not only the economic aspects but also environmental and social ones throughout the entire supply chain. We believe that sustainable production of palm oil and its derivatives, which are used to produce the surfactants, must be carried out in such a way as to clearly exclude the uncontrolled exploitation of areas with high natural value, such as the natural tropical forests. The cultivation of oil palms must be carried out in a manner consistent with the principles and criteria set out by the RSPO Organization in the document ?RSPO Principles & Criteria of Sustainable Palm Oil Production?. Further, we want to have impact on the cultivation of oil palm and palm oil production, to cause that they are conducted with due respect and support the for rights of workers and local communities. PCC EXOL notices and identifies its role in the support of the idea of sustainable palm oil production in the supply chain. Therefore, our membership in the RSPO organization motivates us to act in accordance with RSPO P&C, among others, in terms of :
    -sustainable and controlled exploitation of areas under oil palm cultivation,
    -conservation of biological diversity,
    -sustainable palm oil production,
    -identification and tracking its trail throughout the entire supply chain,
    -reducing greenhouse gas emissions (GHG),
    -respect for human rights, the rights of local labour and their customs and cultures,
    -doing business in accordance with the laws and regulations in force applicable to all areas of activity.
