ESDW, our commitment towards the UN SDGs: Responsible Consumption & Production and Life on Land
2019-06-05

Oleon is keen on sourcing sustainable palm oil, which represents between 5 and 10% of the total volume of our raw materials. Oleon joined the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) in 2007. In collaboration with the Avril Group and Earthworm Foundation, Oleon has gone beyond RSPO by extending its commitment towards sustainable palm oil with a No Deforestation, No Peat, No Exploitation (NDPE) policy in 2016.

Our NDPE commitment includes:

  • No clearing of High Conservation Value (HCV) areas.
  • No clearing of High Carbon Stock (HCS) forests.
  • No planting on peatlands, irrespective of depth.
  • No burning of clear land.
  • Full respect for human rights, including the right to Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) of indigenous and local communities.
  • Full respect for all workers’ rights, including contract, temporary and migrant workers.
