Full Controlled Purchase Protocol Launched
Singapore, 8 January 2020 – Musim Mas is releasing the full version of the Controlled Purchase Protocol (CPP) – a process design to incentivize the suppliers with the intent to commit to sustainability, or cease buying from the supplier if the supplier breaches our Sustainability Policy. It is a comprehensive process supporting the resolution of grievance by linking business and grievance resolutions.
We aim to build long-lasting relationships with our suppliers. The buying and selling of Palm Oil is the most concrete expression of these relationships and is crucial for the implementation of our commitments to No Deforestation, No Peat and No Exploitation (NDPE ).
Initially established in 2015, the CPP is now updated to better manage cases of deforestation, development on peat and all forms of exploitation.
All suppliers with new grievances will be subject to the CPP, which follows three principles:
- Willingness to engage: the supplier shows an intent to commit and a desire to understand further and address the root cause(s) of the grievance.
- Positivity to act: the supplier allocates adequate resources towards addressing the grievance, and can demonstrate the highest management commitment.
- Demonstrating progress: the supplier provides progress reports against the agreed milestones and criteria.
Musim Mas is dedicated to bringing and supporting improvement in the Palm Oil industry. We stand by suppliers who demonstrate a willingness to contribute to a sustainable Palm Oil industry.
