Advancing Toward a Supply Chain that Respects the Environment and Workers’ Rights
92.7% = ADM’s Global Mill Traceability Score through Q3 2015. In 2015, ADM began calculating its palm oil footprint and mill traceability scores for all facilities or regions sourcing palm oil used for food, biofuels or animal feed applications. Mill traceability scores are based on supplier declarations, and require suppliers to provide mill names, parent company names, and mill location coordinates, as well as Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certification status.
203,382 = Metric tons of RSPO-certified palm products (crude palm oil, palm kernel oil, palm-based derivatives and factions) ADM handled in 2015.
67,765 = Metric tons of ISCC certified palm products sourced in 2015.
64 = Percentage of palm products sourced in 2015 that were ISCC or RSPO-certified.
100 = Percentage of the palm oil ADM can offer to North American and European customers that meets the RSPO Mass Balance standard. All of ADM’s major palm oil refining facilities worldwide have been RSPO-certified and are able to meet existing market demand for RSPO-certified oil and derivatives.
270 = Smallholder farmers participating in ADM’s sustainable palm oil production and processing program in Pará, Brazil. The program, which conforms to RSPO standards by allowing planting only in areas that were deforested prior to 2006, encompasses approximately 7,500 hectares (18,500 acres) of oil palm plantation land in areas that have been approved by the government for palm cultivation. Smallholder participants have planted approximately 2,000 of those hectares (5,000 acres); ADM manages the remaining acreage. In 2015, The Forest Trust (TFT) conducted a field assessment of the program and found a generally high standard of operations with respect to deforestation, community relations, labor practices and legality.
