Organisation's Commitments Toward Sustainability

  • How will your organisation promote the RSPO internally and to other stakeholders?
    Internally we raise awareness among relevant staff (buying department) about our commitment to using 100% certified palmoil by 2018 and we monitor our results quarterly. Externally we integrate the use of RSPO certified palmoil in the product requirements shared with our suppliers.
  • 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?
    The issue of sustainable palmoil is included in our annual stakeholder consultation.
  • Where relevant, how will your organisation work towards implementing the RSPO Principles and Criteria or assessing supplier performance against these criteria?
    We have identified products that contain palmoil or palmoil derivatives and we started a dialogue with our suppliers to switch towards using sustainable palmoil in our private label products.
