This is the fourth sustainability report from Wilmar, the world’s largest processor and merchandiser of palm oil. It documents the progress the company has made in the last two years under review to implement its integrated policy of “No Deforestation, No Peat and No Exploitation” (NDPE).
Neil Judd provided an independent opinion on the materiality and responsiveness of the report. He commented, “Wilmar continue to deserve great credit for their sustainability leadership in the palm oil sector. This 2015 Sustainability Report summarises many of the strengths that Wilmar have demonstrated since the launch of their NDPE policy in 2013, and itself is a reflection of the company’s ongoing commitment to transparency. Given the acknowledged sector transformation objective, Wilmar’s task now is to convert the scale and complexity of the challenge represented by their third-party suppliers into a set of practical and feasible measures that can be implemented and reported on.”
