Palm Policy

Policy and commitments on sustainable palm oil.

We are committed to sustainable palm oil production and sourcing, and to protecting forests and areas of high conservation value both in our own plantations and through our third-party suppliers.

We are fully supportive of the  Roundtable Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) and we are committed to working towards a traceable and transparent palm oil supply chain that supports:

no deforestation of high carbon stock (HCS) or high conservation value (HCV) forests and ecosystems

no development of peatland

zero burning

responsible labour practices and respects the rights of local communities. 

We have established a time-bound action plan to establish traceability to plantations and production areas by 2020 and we are working with our third party suppliers to ensure they uphold our commitments under our Palm Oil Policy

In January 2018, we launched our  Palm Dashboard to chart progress against our roadmap of commitments and updates are available on a quarterly basis.
