This ideology is the driver behind many decisions Kruger Products makes in terms of sustainability and corporate social responsibility. “We know that when we reduce our emissions by 15% or commit to a cause, we can make more of an impact than an individual choosing to reduce his emissions by 15% or donating to a cause,” says Steven Sage, VP Sustainability & Innovation Kruger Products. Making a difference is something that Kruger Products takes seriously, which is why it embarked on Sustainability 2015, it’s five-year journey to reduce its environmental impact, in the first place.

Last month, Unilever CEO Paul Polman was in New York – to receive the Lifetime Achievement award from the Rainforest Alliance. As Rainforest Alliance President Tensie Whelan put it, “Paul has made several lifetimes of difference by leading Unilever to become a game changer.”
The company’s work with the Rainforest Alliance is well known – by setting targets like sourcing 100 percent of its palm oil sustainably, Unilever has made it easier for other companies to follow suit and helped complex supply chains become comfortable with change and collaboration.
And, the company hasn’t stopped at palm oil.
