We are committed to deforestation-free value chains in 2025, the most ambitious deadline at this scale in our industry.



Progress on Our Commitment

Our commitment to be free of deforestation and native vegetation conversion in our value chains in 2025 is a central part of our business strategy and planning – and is a crucial element of our climate action plan. We apply this policy across all our value chains, for direct and indirect sourcing, and consistently report on our progress.

Palm oil is an essential ingredient and the most widely used vegetable oil in the world. It is included in many products – food, feed, health goods, cosmetics and even used in energy production, such as biofuels, in some parts of the world. Given its importance to so many sectors, Bunge is committed to sourcing sustainable palm oil traceable to origin.
