“We believe that we can only find solutions for sustainable, certified palm oil products by working together to preserve the forests and improve the living conditions of the people in the farming areas,” according to Jan-Peter Sander of BASF Personal Care Europe.
EcoVadis's insight:

Great to see two of our clients, Henkel and BASF, working together to promote sustainable palm oil production; and at the same time helping reduce destroyed endangered species habitats and having less human rights abuses in their supply chain.

Making Supply Chain Sustainability in the Chemical Industry More Efficient

Making Supply Chain Sustainability in the Chemical Industry More Efficient | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it
TfS  was founded in 2011 as a procurement-led initiative that develops and implements a global program to assess, audit and improve supplier sustainability practices within its member companies. Sustainability information obtained via third-party supplier assessments and audits are made available to other TfS members. This simplifies and streamlines the process to extend sustainability principles into the supply chain for manufacturers and creates an easier process for suppliers, who no longer have to complete individual, duplicative forms.
EcoVadis's insight:

We congratulate TfS on the great accomplishment growing their membership and expanding coverage of supplier sustainability monitoring.

Since BASF launched the Sustainable Solution Steering in 2011, the company has engaged more than 2,000 employees from marketing, sales, R&D and sustainability to assess the sustainability of products, evaluated its entire 60,000 product portfolio and identified 14,000 Accelerator solutions. Today, over 74 percent of BASF’s sales revenues are from products that meet basic sustainability standards in the marketplace (Performer level) and 23 percent of products make a substantial contribution to sustainability (Accelerator level).

BASF, who is one of our clients, has been continuously perfecting its supply chain strategy and we congratulate them for their ongoing efforts to have a greener supply chain.
