KnownSources at a glance

KnownSources is a platform for standardised reporting by the palm oil industry on sustainable sourcing.  It identifies originating sources, measures traceability and sustainability, and provides an informed basis for action to drive progress towards sustainability at production sources.

KnownSources gathers information from every stage in the supply chain, provided directly by suppliers entering data to the platform, and delivers a summary of this information to downstream buyers.  Suppliers can enter their information just once and then use it for all their customers. For their own supply base, they get the same types of reports as their customers.

KnownSources provides auditable information on traceability and sustainability, reported using standardised parameters that allow direct and reliable comparison between different companies and their supply chains.
