NEODA worked closely with Defra to produce their UK statement which draws together new and existing specific commitments on the sourcing of sustainable palm oil which have been made by key organisations representing businesses within the palm oil supply chain in the UK. The statement publicises the significant progress being made by UK business sectors and WWF on sustainable sourcing and sets out their commitments to further action.
It also provides information on Government procurement of sustainable palm oil, advice for Government procurers and businesses on sourcing sustainable palm oil, monitoring UK progress towards 100% sustainable palm oil, and the labelling of palm oil in food products
The statement can be found here
