Next: Dairy Environmental Policy Question 8


Does the brand (company) have the objective to only source sustainable soy and palm for the cow’s feed by 2015 at the latest, and does the brand already purchase sustainable soy and palm for the cow’s feed in order to stop e.g. the destruction of tropical forests for palm and soy oil plantations?

  • Dutch version: Heeft het merk (bedrijf) zich ten doel gesteld om in uiterlijk 2015 alleen nog ‘verantwoorde’ palm en soya te gebruiken voor het voedsel van de koeien, en heeft het merk al verantwoorde palm en soya ingekocht, om onder meer de vernietiging van tropische bossen door palm en soya plantages tegen te gaan?
  • German version: Hat die Marke (Unternehmen) das Ziel, die einzige Quelle nachhaltiger Soja und Palm für die Kuh Futter bis 2015 spätestens und kaufen die Marke bereits nachhaltigen Soja und Palm für die Kuh-Feed, um z.B. die Zerstörung der tropischen Wälder für Palm und Soja Öl-Plantagen zu stoppen?

Answer No:

  • [Brand] explicitly claims not to use [palm/soy] for the cows feed from sustainable sources [...] (see link/page)
