How did we assess the companies in the Scorecard?
This year, we’ve once again assessed companies on their commitment to CSPO, how much CSPO they use, whether they disclose their palm oil use and whether they are members of the RSPO.
We evaluated companies’ performance in relation to the following six questions:
|Is the company a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm OIl (RSPO)?||1|
|Has the company submitted its 2013 Annual Communication of Progress (ACOP) to the RSPO?||1|
|Does the company have a policy on sustainable palm oil - specifically a commitment to source 100% RSPO-certified palm oil by 2015 or earlier?||1|
|Does the company have a policy on reducing greenhouse gas emissions in their palm oil supply chain?||1|
|Is the company disclosing total volumes of palm oil and/or certified sustainable palm oil (CSPO) used/bought?||2|
|What proportion of the company’s total palm oil use/sales were CSPO in 2012-2013?||6|
|Maximum overall score||12|
