As part of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts to realize a sutainable society, The Nisshin OilliO Group established “The Nisshin OilliO Group Basic Procurement Policy” in June 2018, which serves as a guideline for procurement activities for all raw materials and services. To realize and develop a sustainable society, it is important for the entire supply chain to comply with the Policy, based on which we aim to expand our efforts.
At the same time, in order to deeply understand and recognize the environmental and social issues related to palm oil industry and to contribute to its sound development, we established the “Palm Oil Sourcing Policy” in June 2018, followed by the NDPE (No Deforestation, No Peat and No Exploitation) declaration in December 2018.
Furthermore, we have disclosed the “Certified Volume Sourced” and “Traceability to Mill” along with the “Supplier Mill List” in July 2019. The information will be updated regularly on The Nisshin OilliO Group’s website.
|Palm Oil, Palm Kernel Oil, Others (Fatty Acid, Glycerin)||Certified Volume Sourced||Traceability to Mill|
|January to June 2020||39.5%||98.1%|
|January to December 2019||43.5%||98.4%|
|January to December 2018||43.8%||96.1%|
※All suppliers of Nisshin are 100% risk assessed through desktop and geospatial analysis by 3rd party.
We have established a roadmap regarding palm oil products that are traded and processed by the The Nisshin OilliO Group.
