How Cargill is Taking Action
Making progress by focusing on transparency, engagement, verification and transformation in our palm supply chain
We are taking action to deliver on our commitment to produce and source palm oil consistent with the principles of “No Deforestation, No Peat and No Exploitation” (NDPE) by focusing on transparency, engagement, verification and transformation.
By providing transparency into our supply chain and key sourcing practices, we are able to identify and address critical and common challenges. We drive improvement through direct supply engagement and collaborative efforts with sustainability working groups, multi-stakeholder forums and landscape approaches. We verify progress through a variety of monitoring mechanisms. Through our robust and publicly available grievance process, we document and resolve complaints within our supply chain.
While we are encouraged by our progress and that of key industry players, we know there is much more to do. We are taking action to develop and implement scalable solutions that address common challenges, reach millions of smallholders and increase public-private partnerships. Through these actions, we aim to enforce long-term, systemic change to ultimately transform the industry.
