    Organisation's Commitments Toward Sustainability

  • How will your organisation promote the RSPO internally and to other stakeholders?
    100% of Ahold Delhaize?s own brand products containing palm oil (including palm kernel oil and any fractions or derivatives) should be RSPO certified. Where a physical supply chain of certified palm oil is not possible, we purchase Book&Claim credits to cover the volume. Book&Claim credits support farmers starting the journey towards sustainability.

    In addition, AD is part of the Retailers Palm Oil Group (RPOG), which engages pre-competitively, and is represented on the RSPO Board of Governors. We are also active members of the Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) Palm Oil Working Group.
  • 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?
  • Where relevant, how will your organisation work towards implementing the RSPO Principles and Criteria or assessing supplier performance against these criteria?
    Ahold Delhaize works with own brand suppliers to use RSPO Certified palm oil and to become Chain of Custody certified.
  • 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?
