Organisation's Commitments Toward Sustainability

  • How will your organisation promote the RSPO internally and to other stakeholders?
    RSPO membership will enable us to meet our customer requirements with regards to their specific CSPO targets. RSPO membership will be communicated both internally and externally (suppliers & customers) in terms of business impact.
  • 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're currently working with our supply base in order to meet CSPO timelines set by our customers, in doing so we will be using CSPO in all applications where avaialble.
  • Where relevant, how will your organisation work towards implementing the RSPO Principles and Criteria or assessing supplier performance against these criteria?
    Once we have been accepted as RSPO memebers we will take the appropriate steps to achieve Chain of Custody Certification.
  • 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?
    As manufactures we are continually assessing our processes to ensure that wherever possible we support sustainability. By joining the RSPO and gaining Chain of Custody certification we would be actively supporting the use of CSPO.
