Seventh Generation is a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, whose principal objective is "to promote the growth and use of sustainable palm oil through cooperation within the value chain and open dialogue between its stakeholders."
- Seventh Generation is the first company in North America to participate in a value chain certification system called "book and claim" to cover company wide use of palm oil. We purchase book and claim credits similar to the system for buying and selling carbon offset credits.
- Although book and claim has it shortcomings, we believe it is the best way for us to immediately engage on this issue.
This is the first step in what will be a larger strategy to move Seventh Generation towards a segregated, dedicated supply of sustainably harvested palm oil.
