    Organisation's Commitments Toward Sustainability

  • How will your organisation promote the RSPO internally and to other stakeholders?
    Givaudan supports and encourages the production of certified sustainable palm oil (CSPO) by being a member of the RSPO, which
    we joined in June 2011. Givaudan started purchasing palm oil fractions and derivatives within the Green Palm certification supply
    chain system (also known as Book and Claim), which promotes RSPO and the production of palm oil sustainably. In 2012, we
    reached the target of 100% certified sustainable palm oil covered by Green Palm certifi-cates. In 2014, Givaudan started sourcing
    ingredients with RSPO either mass balanced (?MB?) or segregated (?SG?) certifi-cation. In 2015, RSPO Supply Chain Certi?cation
    Systems were met for our European Flavours production sites.
  • 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?
    .Givaudan is proud to be one of over 50 companies committed to the CDP ?Road to Paris? initiative on removing
    com-modity-driven deforestation from supply chains : https://www.cdp.net/en-US/Pages/RTP/removing-commodity-drivendeforestation.
  • Where relevant, how will your organisation work towards implementing the RSPO Principles and Criteria or assessing supplier performance against these criteria?
    .Our partnership with the Natural Resource Stewardship Circle (NRSC) http://www.nrsc.fr/ focused on initiatives around palm:
    During 2015, Givaudan attended workshops on palm with NGOs, key actors in the supply chain and RSPO. Givaudan has been
    active within The Forest Trust (TFT): www.tft-earth.org partnership to enhance traceability in the supply chain and to collect key information for the palm oil and/or palm kernel oil derived in-gredients in our supply chain.
    - Givaudan and French Alliance on Sustainable Palm Oil: Active participation and animation at the Global Forum conver-gences 2015 in Paris and a dedicated working session about zero deforestation.
    - Givaudan participated to the COP21 as a speaker at a web tv conference on climate change and deforestation.
