NDPE Implementation Framework
Cargill supports adoption of the Proforest-led NDPE (No Deforestation, No Peat, No Exploitation) Implementation Framework for increasing supply chain transparency across the palm oil industry. Cargill partnered with Proforest and Pepsico to develop and pilot the framework, which establishes a standard approach for companies seeking to report progress on NDPE commitments aimed at eliminating deforestation and exploitation from their palm oil supply chains. The framework methodology includes researching and categorizing every mill, regional reporting of results, and creation of mill profiles for consistency when measuring progress.

Cargill Environmental Compliance Verification Guideline
In 2021, we launched the Cargill Environmental Compliance Verification Guideline to provide increased transparency and accountability in the way we deliver and report on our NDPE commitments. The guideline provides clear guidance on how to assess suppliers’ practices and helps ensure that plantations and suppliers not only are empowered to achieve and maintain compliance but also are held accountable for transforming their supply chains.
