Relatório CGF sobre Riscos do Trabalho Forçado no Óleo de Palma

A new report, commissioned by the Consumer Goods Forum (CGF), has found that there are risks of forced labor in the palm sector in Indonesia and Malaysia. Through the Consumer Goods Forum’s Palm Oil Taskforce, Mars supported this research, as part of our ongoing commitment to advance respect for human rights.

Our Palm Positive Plan

Advogando por ações além da nossa cadeia de suprimentos

Setting out these expectations within our direct supply chain are important first steps. But, we aren’t satisfied if our suppliers continue to contribute to deforestation elsewhere in their operations. Aligned with our Palm Positive Plan, we are calling on our palm suppliers to prevent deforestation throughout their entire supply chain as a condition of doing business with Mars. We can’t expect them to flip a switch overnight, but we believe that if enough buyers begin to pressure their suppliers for action, we can reach a tipping point for sector-wide change.

Simplificação & verificação

Over the past several years, Mars has been on a journey to map our palm oil supply chain. Today, we’ve achieved 98% traceability to the mill level, and since 2018, we have published our full mill lists to show our progress. We had more than 1,500 mills supplying raw material, a number far too complex to manage, especially for a company that uses only 0.1% of the world’s palm oil.

Fornecimento Responsável

Our Next Generation Supplier program is our enhanced approach to supplier sustainability. We use new tools and technologies and an innovative collaboration model to help suppliers deliver better results for people in their workplaces and for the planet we all share.

Commitments

A Subsection of the Mars Animal Welfare Position

Since 2011, Mars uses 100% cage-free eggs for all human food products (e.g., confectionery, rice products and sauce) in Europe. In 2016, Mars further committed to using 100% cage-free eggs for all human food products in the US, Canada and Australia by 2020.

We are on track to meet this commitment in the US and Canada. However, due to challenges in the marketplace, we will achieve 100% cage-free eggs in Australia by 2025.
