Fuji Oil identified as leader for engaging with suppliers on climate change

Osaka, February 9: For the first time, the Fuji Oil Group achieved a place on the prestigious ‘Supplier Engagement Leaderboard’ of the non-profit environmental organization CDP. Our company is among the top 7% out of a total of 5,640 companies assessed for supplier engagement on climate change.

CDP’s Supplier Engagement Rating (SER) provides a score on how effectively companies are engaging their suppliers on climate change. It is also an indicator to boost business to business collaboration. Organizations are evaluated based on their responses to CDP Climate change questionnaire, especially in 4 areas (Governance, Targets, Scope 3 emissions, and Supplier engagement), and an overall score of the questionnaire.

Earlier this year, the group secured a place in the A list of all the three CDP’s questionnaires 2020 (Forests, Climate change, Water security), and became one of the first Japanese companies to achieve a triple ‘A’.

Fuji Oil Group promotes ESG management to achieve sustainable growth through the creation and offer of Plant-Based Food Solutions. This recognition by CDP confirms, once again, that our activities such as measuring greenhouse gas emissions throughout our supply chain, setting emission reduction targets certified by the Science Based Targets Initiative, and procuring palm oil in consideration with environmental and social issues are highly valued.

We will continue to accelerate our efforts in the entire supply chain to contribute to the society with delicious and healthy foods.
