How we work with E.Leclerc on Palm Oil
In regards to palm oil, the retailer has been working on private brand products to reduce its footprint and they have also been working on certification sourcing. Now, the objective is to work with them on their supply chain in order to reach no deforestation palm oil sourcing.
The work we are doing on palm oil with E.Leclerc covers several points:
- Footprint → to keep updating the footprint every year to monitor the volumes progress
- Traceability → to collect information in order to get 100% traceability back to first importer on food and non-food own brand products with the help of Scamark. We started by sending questionnaire to the 20/80 suppliers and asking them visibility on their supply chain. This inquiry is done by Scamark directly to his suppliers and checked with TFT.
- Transformation → to evaluate the key actors of the supply chain in regards to implementing policy and gather guaranties that they are doing responsible sourcing in coherence with the no deforestation definition and collect the transparency guarantee of implementation plan of actors.
How we work with E.Leclerc on Wood
We have been working with E.Leclerc on responsible wood sourcing, starting by reaching 100% of responsible tropical wood* for outside furniture in 2013. (*FSC certified)
In 2010, we worked with E.Leclerc on a forest policy that defined objectives and action plans necessary to achieve sustainable wood sourcing.
Our work with E.Leclerc is to achieve responsible wood sourcing. Several actions have been taken and we are moving forward and adding more wood products. The action plan is as followed:
- Outdoor furniture wood first (achieved)
- Tropical ’s objective is to reach 100% responsible sourcing on tropical wood by end of 2016
- Non tropical wood objectives are in establishment (study of references, possibilities for responsible wood, priorisation of action plan)
