世界领先的棕榈植物营养素和棕榈甲酯生产商益效维(ExcelVite)与世界自然基金会(WWF)马来西亚分部签署了谅解备忘录,开启了战略合作伙伴关系和对可持续棕榈油承诺的新篇章。 这份谅解备忘录(MOU)是由益效维首席执行官梁永鸿先生和马来西亚WWF 环境保护总监亨利陈博士在世界自然基金会办公室举行(马来西亚雪兰莪州八打灵再也)一同签署。 该合作涵盖了几项主要与可持续棕榈油生产承诺相关的目标。其中目的是协助益效维公司周边的油棕小园主在年底前获得马来西亚可持续棕榈油(MSPO)认证。 “世界越来越关注可持续性做法。棕榈油时常也因为现有的做法缺乏透明度而受到正确或错误的批评。作为一家负责任的马来西亚公司和棕榈油的买家/用户,我们就如我们的客户一样,尤其是消费者,特别关注我们棕榈油的来源和供应链的至关重要性,” 益效维首席执行官梁永鸿先生表示。 “很多人都不知道马来西亚有超过65万小农户/小园主。他们的种植面积占大约40%马来西亚棕榈的种植总面积。 很多时候,由于成本等各种原因,这些小农户/小园主无法完全实施可持续的做法和申报。 这些是整个油棕业的低收入群体。 因此,我们问自己 – 我们能做些什么来帮助和提升这些小农户/小园主的生计,让他们脱离贫困线。” “自2017年以来,我们已着手实施全公司可持续发展计划,其中一项举措是与马来西亚世界自然基金会合作,为益效维制定可持续发展目标和政策。 此后,我们成立了可持续发展委员会,以推动此类举措,并在公司内部根据世界自然基金会的指导开展了多项活动。 现在,我们在帮助我们的合作伙伴,特别是棕榈果供应商(即小园主们)实现可持续发展认证。 我们非常感谢马来西亚世界自然基金会的加入,因为他们能提供指导、协助和实现我们设定的目标,” 梁永鸿先生补充说。 马来西亚世界自然基金会(WWF-Malaysia)是一个国际环境保护组织,于1972年在马来西亚成立。除了开展各种环境保护项目外,马来西亚世界自然基金会还承担可持续金融,环境教育和宣传工作。 今天,马来西亚世界自然基金会的工作涵盖了更广泛的自然环境问题,包括政策工作,环境教育,公众意识和活动等方面。 马来西亚世界自然基金会表示, “我们很高兴能与益效维公司(棕榈植物营养素领先生产商)在可持续发展计划展开合作。 这就如马来西亚世界自然基金会的目的 – 鼓励和协助马来西亚公司实施可持续计划和做法来保护地球环境。” 由于马来西亚是世界上第二大棕榈油生产国,马来西亚世界自然基金会有责任确保相关公司以可持续和负责任的方式生产棕榈油,以免损害或恶化环境,确保我们脆弱的生态系统和野生动物受到保护,并且没有受到不利影响。 马来西亚世界自然基金会补充说: “我们希望能通过与马来西亚棕榈油行业的利益相关者和企业合作,实施可持续生产系统和做法,增加可持续棕榈油(CSPO)认证的使用,供应和消费来实现这一目标。 因此,该谅解备忘录是朝着实现更多可持续棕榈油(CSPO)生产和消费的方向迈出的一步。”
