Supporting the UN SDGs

    The UN’s 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda encourages companies to advance broader societal goals, emphasising collaboration and innovation. Palsgaard directly or indirectly supports most of the SDGs. Those where we believe we can make the most difference are:

    Theglobalgoals Icons 02   

    End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture

    Our emulsifiers support more efficient, more affordable and less wasteful production processes. 

    Theglobalgoals Icons 03  

    Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages

    We believe emulsifiers have a positive role to play in fighting lifestyle diseases by improving the nutritional profile of food while avoiding undesirable ingredients.

    The health and well-being of our employees, too, is very important to us. For that reason, we have recently had a particular focus on employee conditions and employee benefits in for example Mexico, Malaysia and Russia.

    Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all

    We require suppliers to provide good conditions for their workers.
And we support sustainable growth through our responsible sourcing programme and by sourcing raw materials from RSPO-approved suppliers.

    We emphasise fair working conditions for plantation staff, and the well-being of individuals and communities affected by growers and mills.

    Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns

    We responsibly handle, optimise and transparently report on raw material consumption, CO2 emissions and waste products.

    We support sustainable production and protect natural resources by being at the forefront of sustainable palm oil and palm oil-based ingredients sourcing – and in encouraging others to learn from our know-how.

    We help to prolong the shelf-life and quality perceptions of consumer products, reducing food waste.

    Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts

    We have already taken urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts. Over the past 10 years we have reduced our CO2 emissions year after year. Today, most of our production is zero-carbon and we are on track to achieve CO2-neutrality for all our production entities by 2020. 

    Theglobalgoals Icons 16  

    Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels

    We participate in the fight against corruption, educating our suppliers and staff via anti-corruption guidelines and procedures. And we contribute to transparency through memberships of the UNGC, GRI and Sedex and other institutions.
