Palm Oil Sustainability Program

For more than 10 years, Cargill has been working to improve the sustainability of the palm oil industry throughout Indonesia and Malaysia – both on our own plantations and on those of third-party suppliers and the smallholders we support. We were an early member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) in 2004.

In July 2014, Cargill introduced an updated palm oil policy, committing to sustainable, deforestation-free, socially responsible palm oil. In the same period, we joined The Forest Trust (TFT), a non-profit organization that helps companies deliver products responsibly. TFT is supporting our supply chain mapping and the implementation of our new palm oil policy. Cargill also signed the Indonesian Palm Oil pledge at the 2014 U.N. Climate Summit. These actions build on prior commitments and help us move toward our goal of 100 percent responsibly produced palm oil.
