OUR SUSTAINABLE PALM OIL CHALLENGE

Act now and take the Sustainable Palm Oil Challenge! Protect some of the amazing species at risk from deforestation in South East Asia. We are delighted that there’s been a huge increase in the demand for certified sustainable palm oil but we can all do more to create demand by increasing awareness of the issue. The Sustainable Palm Oil Challenge is a way of celebrating the companies who are already committed to 100% RSPO certified sustainable palm oil, supporting those that want to be sustainable and making it easier for you to pick sustainable palm oil products at home.
