Fast Facts: Sustainable Palm

ADM is working with suppliers with No Deforestation commitments. 

In 2020, 100% of ADM´s of direct suppliers had a publicly available No Deforestation policy in place. In addition, 99.3% of palm volume was sourced from direct suppliers who have a supply chain implementation plan with targets in place.

ADM has a palm supplier scorecard tool in place to closely monitor performance.

ADM used a third-party assessor to gather data and assess our direct palm suppliers’ performance using a scorecard tool. According to the findings, for palm sourced from our direct suppliers, approximately 97% of the volume was monitored for deforestation and 99% was covered by human rights due diligence.

ADM is reporting and tracking its palm oil supply chain progress.

Beginning in 2021, ADM will be using the Integrated Reporting Framework (IRF) to report and track our progress in implementing our No Deforestation commitments in our palm oil supply chains. ADM is a participating member of the NDPE IRF Active Working Group, allowing us to be at the forefront of driving progress. We will soon be able to report the percentage of our sourced volumes that are delivering against No Deforestation criteria and will therefore be considered verified deforestation free.
