On September 21, the WWF International Palm Oil Scorecard 2016 was published and placed the Ferrero Group as a top scorer among 137 global companies, which were all assessed according to their sustainability actions in the palm oil sector during 2015
Specifically, in recent months WWF has analysed companies in Europe, North America, Australia and Japan to understand their progress on the certification of palm oil as well as on key actions to ensure a responsible use of palm oil.
Through this survey, Ferrero has obtained a score of 9 points out of 9 and has been labelled as ‘Leading the way’ to the ultimate sustainability goal for the industry – that certified sustainable palm oil becomes the standard commodity grade for all companies.
This result derives from Ferrero having met its certification objective in January 2015, ensuring that the final product physically contains 100% RSPO Segregated palm oil, as well as from its additional sustainability actions.
In 2013 Ferrero launched the Ferrero Palm Oil Charter listing the key single topics to be managed, in order to secure a sustainable palm oil supply chain.
