Tools for Sustainable Palm Oil Sourcing

The North American Sustainable Palm Oil Network (NASPON) is a group of 47 companies, NGOs, certification bodies, and standard setting organizations that came together in 2017 to accelerate collaboration in North America for the uptake of Certified Sustainable Palm Oil. Its aim is also to assist North American companies in delivering on their sustainable sourcing commitments.

NASPON has created a series of tools based on input from NASPON members as well as from companies within NASPON members’ supply chains, NGOs, the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) Secretariat, and other stakeholders. NASPON members and their stakeholders have a lot of experience working on sustainable palm oil sourcing, and these tools aim to harness the learnings in a way that benefits other companies working to overcome similar challenges.

The tools include a standardized survey to assist companies in mapping the palm oil in their supply chain, a comprehensive list of over 600 ingredients that commonly contain palm oil or palm kernel oil to aid in identifying where palm oil is in your supply chain, and resources to better understand the role a supply chain can has in North America.

Join NASPON members and the RSPO Secretariat as we share these tools publicly for the first time, answer questions about the tools, and discuss the broader efforts of NASPON as we work to achieve 100% Certified Sustainable Palm Oil for North America.
