Kellogg's takes leadership stance in support of sustainable palm oil
Kellogg Company today announced its intention to cover its entire palm oil usage with GreenPalm certificates.
"As a socially responsible company, Kellogg is committed to conducting our business in a way that reduces our environmental impact," said Celeste A. Clark, Ph.D., Chief Sustainability Officer, Kellogg Company. "While palm oil is a very small percentage* of our total ingredients, as a socially responsible company, concerns about the sustainable production of palm oil are clearly on our radar screen."
Kellogg Company intends to purchase sustainable palm oil once a segregated palm oil supply is available that is financially and logistically feasible. In the meantime, the Company is helping to reduce deforestation from palm oil production through its support of GreenPalm certificates.
"World Wildlife Fund applauds Kellogg Company's decision to purchase GreenPalm certificates for all of its global palm oil usage," said Jason W. Clay, Ph.D., Senior Vice President, World Wildlife Fund. "By supporting sustainable production in this way, Kellogg is demonstrating just the sort of responsible action that we want others to take. As the first in the U.S. food industry to take this step, they're setting an example for others to follow."
