Webinar



Join us for the upcoming webinar, "Building Momentum for Positive Change in the Palm Derivatives Sector," where we will share the key factors driving progress in the palm derivatives sector collaboration, Action for Sustainable Derivatives.

Action for Sustainable Derivatives (ASD) is a collaborative initiative co-managed by BSR and Transitions, bringing together companies in the cosmetics, home, personal and health care, and oleochemicals industries to collectively tackle supply chain issues around palm oil—specifically aiming for compliance with No Deforestation, No Peat, No Exploitation (NDPE) principles. By harmonizing requirements, standardizing tools and methodologies, and mutualizing efforts, ASD intends to increase the transparency of the global derivatives supply chain, collectively monitor risks and activities along the supply chain, and implement collective action projects to address social and environmental issues on the ground.

The webinar will share ASD’s rapid first-year progress in obtaining collective supply chain transparency for 18 companies, prioritization of supply chain players and landscapes based on environmental and social risk, and the development of a framework for collective action.

ASD will also share its forward impact strategy, outlining how both users of palm derivatives in the beauty, personal and health care, and oleochemical industries can join and how wider sustainable palm initiatives can engage.

Join us on October 28, 2020 to learn more about ASD’s work and how to get involved
