The commitment covers:
1. The switch to sustainably certified palm (kernel) oil, including fractions and derivatives
2. Supplier dialogue on traceability and add-on criteria
Specifically, the members of FONAP agree to:
- Source 100% of their crude, refined and unrefined palm kernel oil (without fractions and derivatives)
Crude refined and unrefined palm (kernel) oil also contains proportionate amounts of crude, refined and unrefined palm (kernel) oil in one product (e.g. creams, flavourings and compound fats).
- With regard to fractions and derivatives (irrespective of whether these are based on palm oil or palm kernel oil)
When switching derivatives to MB, the proportion of palm (kernel) oil in the derivative is relevant.
For fractions and derivatives, Book and Claim certificates must still be used for the remaining volumes. We consider Book and Claim to be a transitional model that can be used to facilitate the transition to physical supply. In this context, we support the use of off-market deals that already meet FONAP’s add-on criteria.
The use of Book and Claim certificates from independent small-scale farmers (I.S. certificates) is still possible in all cases and reduces the obligations to the same extent for mass balance (MB) and segregated (SG) volumes.
