WWF Palm Oil Buyers' Scorecard 2009This Scorecard is an assessment of the palm oil purchasing practices of major European companies that produce or sell everyday consumer products. The performance of each company in the Scorecard was assessed against a set of objective criteria relating to their commitments to, and actions on, responsible purchasing of palm oil.
The scorecard aims to:
- hold up a mirror to major European retailers and manufacturers who buy palm oil, setting a baseline level of performance against which these companies can measure their improvements on sustainable palm oil sourcing over the coming years
- build awareness of sustainable palm oil among companies both inside and outside of the EU and demonstrate that companies can be part of the solution
- show palm oil producers around the world that there is a mainstream and growing market for sustainably produced palm oil
