Assessment content already designed, adapted for a wide range of direct suppliers, and ready to be sent.
Assessment developed and evaluated by Earthworm Foundation, a global non-profit with decades of experience addressing deforestation and exploitation in commodity supply chains.
EPI is for more than a survey assessment - it is a process to establish supplier improvement programs through action planning and dialogue informed by assessment results.
The Engagement for Policy Implementation (EPI) Palm Oil Assessment provides an in-depth review of suppliers’ No Deforestation, No Peat, and No Exploitation (NDPE) policies and implementation activities. EPI gathers information about environmental and social practices in direct suppliers’ global supply chains, including the refinery, mill, and plantation level. The program includes review and follow-up engagement by Earthworm regional experts to improve accuracy of responses and provide an evaluation for each supplier. Earthworm identifies strengths and opportunities for improvement, which guide subsequent dialogue and action planning with suppliers.
Earthworm Foundation is an impact-driven non-profit that works on the ground to create conditions for nature and people to thrive. Partnering with businesses, civil society and governments, it focusses on implementing responsible sourcing commitments in value chains, innovating practical solutions to the social and environmental challenges of production practices, and catalyzing industry-wide chain reactions to help achieve transformation at scale.
