Organisation's Commitments Toward Sustainability

  • How will your organisation promote the RSPO internally and to other stakeholders?
    Zoo Atlanta will continue to promote sustainable palm oil products via our education events, orangutan, tiger, sun bear, and other affected species programming, conservation campaigns and website. In addition we will work with our partners to educate on the value of using sustainable palm oil.
  • 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?
    We have strong partnerships in the community with local businesses and plan to launch a sustainable palm oil campaign in which we work with before mentioned business to both thank them for their RSPO commitment and help set an example in being sustainable. As mentioned above, we will teach our guests how to shop sustainable palm oil products via various education/animal events and campaigns.
  • Where relevant, how will your organisation work towards implementing the RSPO Principles and Criteria or assessing supplier performance against these criteria?
    Our food vendor, Sodexo, is a recent member of the RSPO and has made a commitment to use sustainable palm oil moving forward. We will highlight this partnership with educational support.
  • 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?
    Zoo Atlanta’s mission is to help guests understand how they can safeguard existing species through conservation. By being a member of the RSPO, we can better serve this mission and help share the most current news and information regarding sustainable palm oil. We hope to share RSPO’s information with all of our guests, staff, volunteers, partners, and contributors to increase awareness of this pressing issue.
