Organisation's Commitments Toward Sustainability

  • How will your organisation promote the RSPO internally and to other stakeholders?
    Internally palm oil is part of compound ingredients brought onto site so staff are aware that we need to source responsiblly
  • 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?
    Our sustainability manager is the person who communicates with other organisations and brings information back to the on site Technical meetings and Director meetings
  • Where relevant, how will your organisation work towards implementing the RSPO Principles and Criteria or assessing supplier performance against these criteria?
    Suppliers are audited against specification and at this point RSPO status on palm can be challenged as we do not buy directly any palm ingredients it is about finding out what our suppliers are doing
