          Details of monitoring: Using internal monitoring and verification systems

          How frequently is compliance assessed?: Aidenvironment identifies and prioritises the supplier groups that will be subject to compliance verification each year.
          "Given our pivotal role in the value chain, we recognise our ability to influence our third-party suppliers to be NDPE policy compliant throughout all their operations. In practice, this means that we engage our supplier’s management in dialogue about potential non-compliance, and we advise them to issue Stop Work Orders (SWO) to relevant management units pending 1) implementation of the suppliers’ own NDPE policy, 2) conduct of High Conservation Value (HCV) or High Carbon Stock (HCS) studies, 3) initiation/ conduct of conflict mediation and/or other corrective measures. The SGC programme helps us screen our suppliers at company group level, document cases on potential non-compliance, engage our suppliers in dialogue about requirements for compliance and to monitor commitments made.

          What type of support does the company offer to its suppliers to help them achieve compliance with commitments?: Training and guidance

          Does the company engage non-compliant indirect suppliers in order to address and remedy non-compliance?: No
          "We strive to continue the dialogue, offer training and guidance, conduct assessments and monitor progress, in order to change our suppliers’ behaviour towards more sustainable practices. However, in instances, where suppliers repeat non-compliant behaviour or appear unmotivated to comply with our NDPE policy, we will suspend trade with the supplier whilst complaint proceedings are ongoing."; "The JS announced Wilmar’s new NDP (no deforestation and peatland development) “Suspend then Engage” grievance approach, which took effect in January 2019. Under this approach, new grievances with verified proof of deforestation and/or peat development will result in an immediate suspension of the supplier at a Group level. The supplier must then meet the re-entry criteria5 , which specify the minimum criteria the suspended supplier must meet for Wilmar to consider resuming sourcing."

          Does the company have a list of blacklisted or otherwise excluded suppliers or producers?: Yes 
          "Since 2015, we have suspended 26 parent companies (managing 2.2 million hectares of oil palm plantations and 69 mills) from our supply chain due to non-compliance with our NDPE policy, 22 of which were related to deforestation. This loss of supply to our business is substantial but through these actions, it showed our seriousness in tackling these issues and ensure suppliers would continue to adopt sustainable practices to avoid being suspended."
