Organisation's Commitments Toward Sustainability

  • How will your organisation promote the RSPO internally and to other stakeholders?
    Campbell is committed to purchasing 100% certified sustainable palm oil for all of its businesses. We have an external facing commitment against which we measure ourselves. Please see: http://investor.campbellsoupcompany.com/phoenix.zhtml?c=88650&p=irol-supplierrequirements.

    As part of our RSPO membership, we will continue promote the use of sustainable palm oil, as well as our commitment to the RSPO. We will also ensure that the necessary individuals internally are trained on the RSPO membership and our commitments under the RSPO Code of Conduct.
  • Where relevant, what processes is the organisation establishing to engage with interested parties, for example to resolve conflict or to use sustainably produced palm oil?
    As mentioned above, Campbell currently has a commitment to use 100% sustainable palm oil in its operations. We also proactively engage with stakeholders who have an interest in our use of palm oil and we work with our suppliers and others in the case of a conflict.
  • Where relevant, how will your organisation work towards implementing the RSPO Principles and Criteria or assessing supplier performance against these criteria?
    We will continue to work with our suppliers to ensure that they are providing us with certified sustainable palm oil and that they are RSPO members. We also currently have internal procurement and quality processes in place to verify that we are receiving certified sustainable palm.
  • Any other information that would support the application such as what your organisation hopes to gain from joining RSPO and how it would support RSPO?
    Campbell has been RSPO certified for the past 3 years using the Arnott's membership. Campbell is the parent company, so the purpose of this application is to have one global membership under the parent company and our subsidiaries will all fall under this corporate membership.

    We believe that being a member of the RSPO is an important part of our journey of sourcing 100% sustainable palm oil. We will abide by the RSPO Code of Conduct and will promote the RSPO internally and externally. We also will work directly with our suppliers to help them understand our commitments and the reason behind our commitments.
