The announcement puts an end to some five years of collaboration between the environmental group, which had advised APP on the implementation of its forest conservation policies, and the company. The group failed to provide a credible response or to take meaningful action. Sinar Mas Group is the parent company of APP, Indonesia's largest pulp and paper company, which was linked to the record-breaking haze in the region in Following the crisis, APP beefed up its fire suppression strategies, and reaffirmed its commitment to the zero-deforestation pledge it made in
We seek continuous improvement in animal welfare practices within our fresh pork supply chain. Every fresh pork supplier will be required to meet the new program requirements.
Specific new tracking and audit requirements include: Each fresh pork supplier must have on-farm video monitoring for sow farms and will be subject to unannounced animal welfare video audits by an accredited and independent third-party.
Farms will be given 72 hours notice. Each fresh pork supplier must implement an internal annual animal welfare audit for all farms that includes a grading system and corrective action tracking. This must occur at all farms. Each supplier must make the documentation and results of the tracking and audit program available to Walmart as requested, but not less than twice annually.
Each supplier must not only ensure that key management personnel are PQA Plus Certified but also require each production site to ensure that key management personnel that handle pigs are PQA Plus Certified. Deforestation position paper site must participate in the NPB third-party verification pool.
Our goal is to build more transparency and confidence in the fresh pork supply chain and in the pork industry overall through the above program. To meet those needs, we work with partners all along the supply chain to improve the sustainability of products we sell. We do this while working to offer quality products, everyday low prices and putting customers in charge of their food choices by helping provide clear, accurate information about food ingredients and production.
Farm Animal Welfare Farm animals provide an important and nutritious source of protein. There is growing public interest in how food is produced and consumers have questions about whether current practices match their values and expectations about the well-being of farm animals.
Animal science plays a central role in guiding these practices, but does not always provide clear direction. Increasingly, animal welfare decisions are being considered through a combination of science and ethics. Position We recognize that farm animals play an important role in providing nutritious meat, dairy and eggs to our customers and members.
We believe that farm animals in our supply chain should be treated humanely throughout their lives and that the welfare of farm animals should be considered in selection of all production systems, practices and technologies.
First, we expect that our suppliers will not tolerate animal abuse of any kind. Freedom from Hunger and Thirst — by providing ready access to fresh water and a diet to maintain full health and vigor. Freedom from Discomfort — by providing appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area.
Freedom from Pain, Injury or Disease — by ensuring prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment. Freedom from Fear and Distress — by ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering.
Third, we will work with our supply chain partners to implement practices consistent with the Five Freedoms of animal welfare. Report to authorities and take appropriate disciplinary and corrective action in any cases of animal abuse. Adopt and implement the principles of the Five Freedoms in their own operations and industry producer programs, and publish a corporate policy on animal welfare.

This can be the basis for further. Global deforestation and forest degradation are problems of a global scale, but how much does paper consumption impact them? In its new position paper published today, “Halting Deforestation and Achieving Sustainability,” the Rainforest Alliance addresses the recent surge in deforestation-free pledges.
Timed to coincide with an Innovation Forum event in Washington, DC on “How Business Can Tackle Deforestation,” the paper argues the deforestation-free trend .
