By 2020, our own brand products won’t contribute to global deforestation.
As a member of The Consumer Goods Forum (TCGF), a global industry network that brings together the CEOs of major global retailers and consumer brand owners, Woolworths is a signatory to the CGF Board resolution to achieve zero net deforestation through the consumer goods supply chain by 2020 through sourcing commodities like palm oil, soya, beef, paper and board in a sustainable fashion
Woolworths is making substantial progress in sustainably sourcing paper and timber products.
Woolworths is a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) and we are committed to sourcing only RSPO certified sustainable palm oil by 2015 for all Woolworths own brand products.
We are clearly labelling use of palm oil in our products so our customers can make informed choices.
We used 5,737 tonnes of palm oil in 2014; including 3,745 tonnes of RSPO approved certified sustainable palm oil. The remaining palm oil that we use is covered by Green Palm Certificates, which contribute to the production of certified sustainable palm oil.
