Use of Palm Oil in Girl Scout Cookies baked by Little Brownie Bakers a subsidiary of the Kellogg Company.
The Kellogg Company has been listening carefully to the concerns of consumers regarding the impact that the production of palm oil has on the environment. Kellogg has made a commitment to help to reduce deforestation from palm oil production by purchasing GreenPalm certificates covering 100 percent of its global palm oil use. Estimates show that only six percent of the current global supply of palm oil is sustainably grown.
The proceeds from the sale of these certificates is used to support palm oil plantations as they transition to certified, sustainable growing practices. This approach encourages palm plantations to make continuous improvements that will ultimately lead to an increase in production of sustainable palm oil with environmental, social, and economic benefits.
