Kellogg Buys GreenPalm Certificates To Help Reduce Deforestation From Palm Oil Production

March 3, 2011: 05:54 PM EST
In an effort to help fund sustainable palm oil production, Kellogg Company says it is buying GreenPalm certificates that will cover all of its global palm oil use. Purchasing the certificates is a way of helping to reduce deforestation from palm oil production. Segregated, sustainably grown palm oil is not currently available outside of Europe. Kellogg says the form of palm oil it uses in Europe is not available in a segregated, sustainable supply. Only six percent of the global supply of palm oil is sustainably grown, according to GreenPalm. Kellogg says palm oil comprises only a small percentage of its total ingredients, but “concerns about the sustainable production of palm oil are clearly on our radar screen."
