Organisation's Commitments Toward Sustainability

  • How will your organisation promote the RSPO internally and to other stakeholders?
    We will support, promote and work towards the production, procurement and use of Sustainable Palm Oil. We directly source palm oil exclusively from suppliers that are active members of the RSPO, thereby promoting the RSPO.
  • 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?
    In 2012, we will begin sourcing Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO), and we are committed to source 100% of our palm oil as CSPO by 2015.
  • Where relevant, how will your organisation work towards implementing the RSPO Principles and Criteria or assessing supplier performance against these criteria?
    We directly source palm oil exclusively from suppliers that are active members of the RSPO who support the Principles and Criteria.
  • 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?
    Our corporate Sustainability Strategy calls for us to create a better tomorrow by focusing on ensuring our long-term economic viability, limiting our environmental impact, and being socially responsible, and we feel that being a member of the RSPO would support these goals.
