Why should you source sustainable palm oil?

Many businesses in recent years have suffered reputational loss as the target of media and NGO campaigns for sourcing palm oil that leads to deforestation, biodiversity and habitat loss, displacement of indigenous peoples, and climate change.

Initiatives such as the WWF Palm Oil Scorecard are increasingly shedding light on the global supply chains of food and non-food manufacturers and retailers, and customer demand for sustainable and ethical palm oil is growing.

Sourcing sustainable palm oil, whether directly for your product manufacture or in the finished products you sell, shows your commitment to sustainability and can even allow you to charge a premium. Please see these CPET case studies of successful sustainable palm oil sourcing to learn more.
