Silbury is committed to developing sustainable supply chains with clear guidelines and policies in place covering all our key commodities.
All our suppliers meet the requirements in terms of ethical, social and environmental standards they adhere to, and we actively look for suppliers with strong corporate and social responsibility programmes. Wherever possible, we subscribe to all relevant sustainable sourcing standards and supply chain audit procedures.
Continually reviewing our supply chains and sourcing procedures, we audit our suppliers on a risk-assessed basis to ensure that their operations meet the latest regulations and reflect the most up to date best-practice guidelines.
Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO)
Silbury recognises that palm oil is the world’s leading vegetable oil in terms of production volume and consumption. Millions of people rely on palm oil to support their livelihoods. As the world’s population approaches 9 billion by 2050 demand for edible oil will continue to grow. Palm oil is the world’s highest yielding oil crop and uses less land per tonne of oil produced than any other vegetable oil. It is vital that we understand the environmental and social impact of palm oil production and play our part in the global effort to promote sustainable palm oil products.
Silbury recognises RSPO as the primary global sustainability standard for all palm oil products. We became a member in 2010 and achieved certification in 2011. We now supply palm oil through each of the RSPO’s certified supply chain options – segregated SG, mass balance MB and identity preserved IP. For more information about the RSPO please visit their website www.rspo.org
We are committed to providing our customers with the information they require to feel confident in sourcing palm and palm kernel oil products which have been sustainably and ethically sourced. We also participate in EFECA and UK RSPO events and consultations to further awareness of the issues involved.
We work hard to encourage our stakeholders to buy and use RSPO certified ingredients and submit ourselves to regular and rigorous RSPO audits. Our suppliers can trace 98% of all palm oil used back to the mill and 26% back to the plantations. We are resolutely committed to promoting and encouraging the sustainable production of palm oil and our ultimate goal is to move to 100% supply chain traceability.
