A Healthier Future: Finding Alternatives to Palm Oil

Commitment by

A.T. Kearney

In 2012, A.T. Kearney committed to direct $2 million of in kind services to address the environmental, health and economic issues of palm oil by finding sustainable alternatives for fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) companies and other large palm oil users. A.T. Kearney will develop a business case for the use of palm oil alternatives with the objective of minimizing negative impact (financial and environmental) on current palm oil producers and regions, establish an oversight committee with leading consumer goods companies to validate and review these solutions, and design the operating model and governance structure for a global alliance that will enable sustainable development and commercialization of palm oil alternatives through company commitments (from product development to supply chain and business investments). A.T. Kearney has committed a team of dedicated consultants in a 'clean room' environment to analyze data as well as leverage subject matter experts among its partners globally.
