Industries play a crucial role in the global production and use of palm oil. With a growing awareness of this role, more businesses in Singapore and Asia want to take action and may need help knowing where to start.
How can businesses work towards reducing their unsustainable palm oil footprint while addressing the growing consumer demand for sustainable products and services?
In summary, the main actions businesses can take to improve sustainability in the palm oil industry and contribute to the Singapore Green Plan include:
- Make an ambitious, time-bound commitment to buy only RSPO-certified sustainable palm oil
- Utilize their purchasing power to influence the sourcing practices of their suppliers, by sourcing only from suppliers that have deforestation- and conversion-free policies
- Inform and educate the consumer on sustainable palm oil to increase the demand for CSPO through campaigns and eco-labeling
- Inspire other companies and join action oriented initiatives such as SASPO
