Only a third of palm oil fully traceable

June 27, 2019 EcoVadis ‏‏‎

Only around a third of European palm oil is traceable to the plantation – necessary to ensure zero-deforestation – according to a report prepared for retailers. The study, carried out by the Palm Oil Transparency Coalition (POTC), found 98% of palm oil supply in Europe was traceable to the mill but only a third to the plantation, with the exception of one importer that reported 75% traceability to the plantation. The figures were based on the 10 largest palm oil importers and traders to POTC members.
