On December 19, 2018, Greenpeace wrote to Bunge asking for an update on steps taken to eliminate deforestation from our palm supply chain. We responded to that letter on January 8, 2019.
On March 1, 2018, Bunge published its Sustainable Palm Oil Policy. Bunge adopted major elements of the IOI Group sustainable palm oil policy including the implementation annex that was created by IOI group through consultation with Greenpeace in 2017. The Bunge sustainable palm oil policy and annex include specific language on elements dealing with eliminating deforestation from our supply chain. This policy and annex are leading in supplier engagement and addressing non-compliance.
