Agritrade Co Ltd Responsible Palm Oil Policy (Incorporating No Deforestation, No Peat & No Exploitation - NDPE)
Introduction and Scope
Palm oil is a crucial edible oil that offers job opportunities, empowers communities, and supports livelihoods. On one hand, it is known to be one of the most cost-effective oilseed crops as it has the highest yield per hectare while using the least area compared to other vegetable oil crops. On the other hand, the production of palm oil has revealed undeniable concerns over human rights abuse and exploitation of the local communities and lands.
To help address and recognize these challenges, Agritrade is committed to supplying palm oil responsibly by safeguarding the environment and supporting the communities living and working in palm oil plantations. Agritrade believes all agricultural supply chains should be environmentally sustainable and economically beneficial to local communities.
This policy is applicable as of April 1, 2021, to all purchasing operations and we expect all our third-party suppliers of oil palm products and its derivatives to adhere to these commitments in their operations. Agritrade will work to ensure that our third-party suppliers comply to our policy and Agritrade will only source through the transparent and traceable network.
To achieve our long-term commitments for a sustainable palm oil industry, we aim to ensure a transparent, traceable, and responsible supply chain by adopting no deforestation, no peatland planting and no exploitation of local communities and workers in palm oil plantation.
