Learn about the people behind our sustainable palm oil programmes
Palm oil production is an important source of income for millions of smallholder farmers in Southeast Asia.
That’s why we’re committed to using sustainably produced palm oil in our business and achieving a deforestation-free supply chain in palm oil by the end of 2023. How can we be sure this is done in a way that benefits everyone and everything in the ecosystem?
What we can do about it
At Unilever, one way we’re helping to drive sustainability in the palm oil sector is by taking a landscape approach. This collaborative method means all stakeholders are united behind a shared vision of sustainable development and enables us to help drive positive transformation beyond our supply chain.
Our recent report on our five programmes across Southeast Asia shows the early results of these partnerships. So far, 150,000 hectares of natural ecosystems have been protected and 5,000 smallholder farmers are to become Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certified.
But don’t take out word for it. You can take a virtual trip into the heart of these programmes through our Reimagining Landscapes Google Earth Story. Meet the communities and organisations working there, and experience for yourself the vital ecosystems we’re helping to restore.
