We are dedicated to leading the way in industry transformation, working extensively with our suppliers and partners. The , recognized . As part of the WWF Palm Oil Buyers Scorecard initiative, Ferrero’s case study, which includes our key achievements, challenges and plans for the future on our sustainable palm oil sourcing, is available on the WWF Palm Oil Buyers Scorecard .
The Ferrero Palm Oil Charter, launched in November 2013, has fully incorporated the requirements and Verification Indicators of POIG. We actively engage with our suppliers and assess them using independent third parties against the Charter’s requirements. Moreover, in 2015 the Charter has incorporated the HCS Approach and the “”.
Building on the many years of positive impact of the existing Ferrero Palm Oil Charter, we are currently undertaking a major collaborative effort with our key internal and external stakeholders to review it by the end of 2020. The new Charter will better reflect future challenges and Ferrero’s value proposition.
Ferrero is also an active supporter of the (HCSA), which is a methodology that distinguishes forest areas for protection from degraded lands with low carbon and biodiversity values that may be developed. The methodology was developed with the aim to ensure a widely accepted, practical, transparent, robust and scientifically credible approach that implements commitments to halt deforestation in the tropics, while ensuring the rights and livelihoods of local people are respected.
In order to reinforce our Palm Oil Charter’s principles on “no-deforestation”, since 2016 we have been working with to develop and implement our own Verification Protocol. As a result, from October 2020 Ferrero started using the Starling satellite monitoring and verification service across all its supply chain to ensure it is deforestation-free. uses a system to independently verify and monitor land use, including identifying potential deforestation and conversion occurring within our palm oil supply chain. Developed by a consortium made up of Airbus Defence and Space, Earthworm Foundation and SarVision, Starling uses a combination of high-resolution radar and optical satellite imagery to monitor land cover change and forest cover disturbance in near real time.
Actively supporting Transformation
We are an active promoter of sustainable palm oil at multiple levels. We are contributing members of various multidisciplinary expert platforms and roundtables, where the future of the palm oil industry is tailored and discussed.
We work closely with the (EPOA), a business initiative that collaborates with national initiatives throughout different European countries, by educating stakeholders on the full palm oil story, facilitating science-based communication and creating a balanced view on the nutritional and sustainability aspects of palm oil. EPOA strongly supports the uptake of 100% sustainable palm oil.
Ferrero welcomes the approval, by the Board of Governors of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), of landmark rules calling for “Shared Responsibility,” and for all members of the organization to do their part to “Mobilize, Act and Transform” to fulfil its mission. Following the Board of Governor’s actions, all members now share the same sustainability requirements and obligations that are the same across all member categories.
As an active member of the (FONAP), Ferrero has been working very closely with WWF Germany and is in direct contact with the local NGO Wild Asia to discuss progress and track results of the (WAGS). We have sponsored the first phase of the which began in July 2018 and have signed phase 2, which started in December 2019 and will continue through March 2021. Our contribution to this project is voluntary and goes beyond our membership within FONAP. The project, supported by global, national and local partners, has a strong focus on supporting smallholder farmers to join a sustainable supply chain, but it also tackles conservation and deforestation issues. Furthermore, the WAGS aims to test and apply FONAP addon criteria (criteria that FONAP has defined on top of certification schemes such as RSPO) in realistic conditions to scale these measures up in the whole palm oil supply chain in Malaysia.
