Review of policy options relating to sustainable palm oil procurement

K Bottriell, N Judd | 2011 | Proforest for Defra

This report, commissioned by Defra, gathers industry viewpoints on several potential policy options relating to increasing the volume of sustainable palm oil consumed within UK supply chains, along with the possible costs and benefits of each of these options. We interviewed 50 companies to establish their commitments to sustainable sourcing. In addition to this a questionnaire and a workshop were used to collect UK stakeholder views on the various policy options available. Another report (available via the link on the right hand side of this page) aimed to map and understand UK palm oil supply chains, which was important preparatory work for this review.
