P&G Launches Work with Small Farmers to Ensure No Deforestation in Its Palm Oil Supply Chain

Separating sustainable sources from non-sustainable sources in the production of palm oil and palm kernel oil is highly complicated, but Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG) is stepping up to address the problem. The Company is conducting an in-field study to understand the practices of small farmers and how those practices can be improved to protect local forests. P&G is partnering with the Malaysia Institute for Supply Chain Innovation (MISI) to field the study, fulfilling a commitment it made earlier this year as part of new goals to achieve zero deforestation in the palm oil supply chain.
