Organisation's Commitments Toward Sustainability

  • How will your organisation promote the RSPO internally and to other stakeholders?
    - By use of RSPO palm oil in products of our own label brand.
    - By RSPO company communication.
  • 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?
    Bofrost* is a retailer. We by our own label products from producers. In the requirements for our own label products, we wrote down that we want to have RSPO palm oil in our products. The requirements are provided to our suppliers and must be accepted by our suppliers. To engage with interested parties, we have already processes to communicate with suppliers, customers and press via special departments. We plan to use these departments to resolve conflicts in respect to palm oil as well and to be as much as transparent as possible.
  • Where relevant, how will your organisation work towards implementing the RSPO Principles and Criteria or assessing supplier performance against these criteria?
    Not relevant, we are a retailer and we ?only? sell finished product and we want to start with RSPO - company communication. Nevertheless, in the product specifications, which are signed by our suppliers, we will specifiy the use of RSPO Palm oil. Our objective is to increase the RSPO palm oil usage in our products. So we implement statistics to follow up the degree of RSPO palm oil usage in our products. On bofrost*`s demand (e.g. in case of a traceability audit), suppliers will provide raw material specifications, RSPO certificates and delivery notes of their RSPO raw materials used.
  • 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?
