Mars Extends Sustainable Palm Oil Push

palmoilMars announced a new palm oil sourcing policy that will require all of its suppliers to have a fully sustainable and traceable palm oil supply by the end of 2015.

The company also has demanded its suppliers make this commitment to its sourcing charter by end of this year, joining a list of companies that have added to their palm oil commitments.

Mars said this policy is at the forefront of the business’ strengthened commitment to tackle deforestation, and further supported by the launch of its new deforestation policy.  In addition to palm oil, Mars will initially focus on its other raw materials that have the greatest impact on forests: beef, pulp and paper, and soy.

Mars said its 100 percent certified supply of palm oil is not enough. Mars also said that it has become a member of The Forest Trust (TFT).  TFT field teams will work with Mars suppliers in mills and plantations to help them build traceability and verify that their fresh-fruit bunch supply, including supply from smallholders, meets Mars’ sourcing charter.

The Union of Concern Scientists just released a palm oil scorecard of consumer brands.
