“Green Century Commends Aramark* for No-Deforestation Commitment, Following Green Century Engagement” – Green Century Funds – January 23, 2019

On January 23, 2019 Green Century reported that it “collaborated with Aramark to develop a robust no-deforestation commitment to be implemented by 2025. Aramark, one of the world’s largest food service providers, serves nearly 2 billion meals each year.

Aramark agreed to develop and implement a deforestation policy that addresses “No Deforestation, No Peat, No Exploitation” (NDPE) sourcing practices, including legal deforestation. In 2019, Aramark will perform a supply chain assessment to better understand its forest-related risks across all geographies within its supply chain.

Aramark also will complete its transition to 100% sustainably sourced soy and palm oil by only sourcing from suppliers certified by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) by June 30, 2019. It agreed to enhance its transparency by providing regular and public updates on its no-deforestation progress, as well.”
