Westmill supports the principals of the New York Declaration on Forests and of SDG 15 (Life on Land) and recognises that deforestation and the loss of High Conservation Value Areas (HCVA) caused by human activities and climate change presents real challenges both now and into the future.
Westmill understand that without meaningful changes in the way that organisations source raw materials it will negatively impact the lives and livelihoods of millions of people. Forests are vitally important for sustaining life and livelihoods and play a major role in the fight against climate change. Westmill is committed to sustainable sourcing of our key commodities and where possible, we will use our influence to drive positive change.

• Soya used for food manufacture, where possible, will be sourced from companies that have their own Sustainable Soy Programme and support the RTRS (Round Table on Responsible Soy) Principles and Standards. We continue to explore opportunities to improve the sustainability of our soya programme and will review opportunities to align with the RTRS further.
