WWF Scorecard shows which companies kept their promises to consumers on palm oil

WWF Scorecard shows which companies kept their promises to consumers on palm oil | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it
The Scorecard shows that both large and small companies can easily source certified sustainable palm oil. However, due to their buying power, large users of palm oil are crucial to the transformation of the wider industry.  A handful of these large users evaluated in the Scorecard – Unilever, Ferrero, FrieslandCampina, Reckitt Benckiser, Colgate-Palmolive, and ConAgra Foods – are showing their peers exactly how they too should be driving industry change by sourcing significant volumes of certified sustainable palm oil from any of the RSPO approved supply chains. 
EcoVadis's insight:

Companies are ensuring that they source certified sustainable palm oil while organisations such as WWF are monitoring the commitments and actions of these companies. Are you following this trend and driving the change in your supply chain?

Stakeholders Gathered to Discuss Promotion of Sustainable Palm Oil Supply Chain in China | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it
China is the world’s second largest importer and third largest consumer of palm oil. In the past two years, the average import volume of palm oil was around 6 million tons. The expected annual growth of demand for palm oil in China is 10%, meaning that by 2020 the demand for palm oil in China is expected to reach 12 million tons.
EcoVadis's insight:

Great to see a lot of effort being expended so as to integrate related enterprises to increase the procurement of sustainable palm oil and achieve sustainable development in China.

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.
