Guidance for peat grievances
This document was commissioned by Cargill and written by Proforest as part of Proforest’s work with Cargill on grievances and how to address grievances with its suppliers.
It was designed to guide internal processes, but Cargill decided to make the short guidance public to demonstrate how it approaches these issues. The long form of this guidance will not be published, but is referenced in places throughout this document, and these references have been left in to demonstrate where more information is available. If you are interested please send a request to receive the more detailed information to firstname.lastname@example.org
The guidance is primarily developed for growers or mills as a first point of contact, but corrective actions ultimately need to be carried out where peat degradation happened whether by mills, plantations they own or/and plantations of outgrowers or smallholder farms that they source from.
