New Principles and Guidance for Responsible Palm Oil Production
Found in everyday household items, palm oil is the world’s most popular vegetable oil. Since 1990, global demand for cheaply produced palm oil has quintupled, and demand is projected to double by 2030. As consumption grows, there is increased documentation of forced/child labor and hazardous working conditions.
Today, an unprecedented and diverse alliance of international human rights and environmental organizations announced the release of Free and Fair Labor in Palm Oil Production: Principles and Implementation Guidance. This first of its kind guide represents an opportunity for companies that source, trade, or produce palm oil to fully embrace their responsibility to ensure that the rights of palm oil workers are respected.
