Sustainable Palm Oil

Working to improve sustainability of the palm oil industry

For more than 15 years, Cargill has been working to improve the sustainability of the palm oil industry globally – through our own plantations, with our direct and third-party suppliers and in partnership with the smallholders we support. We were an early member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) in 2004.

Cargill’s Policy on Sustainable Palm Oil commits to a transparent, traceable and sustainable palm oil supply chain. We continue to actively work with suppliers and establish Standard Operating Procedures to raise awareness and build capacity to guide implementation of this Policy. We expect all suppliers to transparently demonstrate progress against this Palm Policy. Where gaps are identified, we will transparently implement our grievance procedure to ensure compliance. These actions build on prior commitments and help us move toward our goal of 100 percent responsibly produced palm oil.

A high-tech approach to sustainable palm oil

Cargill is using drones on Indonesian palm plantations in order to map and monitor land use and aid yield intensification efforts. The drones will also help Cargill respond to land use issues, promote conservation, and increase plantation management transparency.
