Action for Sustainable Derivatives (ASD)—a collaborative initiative co-managed by BSR and Transitions—brings together companies in the beauty, personal and health care, and oleochemicals industries to collectively achieve responsible production and sourcing of palm oil derivatives. This webinar will share ASD’s second year of progress in taking a collective approach to supply chain mapping as well as its plans to take deeper action in responding to risk, engaging suppliers and investing in positive impact in palm production landscapes. The webinar will also outline how downstream buyers can leverage the learnings of this collective approach and how wider responsible sourcing initiatives can engage and collaborate.
