Retailers made up 31% of all those assessed under the scorecard with a response rate of 83% which was the highest of any sector.

The average score for all retailers that participated in the survey was 12.9 with retailers scoring higher overall than other sectors. The top retailers, all scoring over 18 points were EDEKA, Kaufland, IKEA, Marks and Spencer, and ALDI South.

Of the 16 points available under the own supply chain section, respondent retailers scored and average of ten points. Retailers again outperformed on companies with commitments to purchase 100% RSPO CSPO with 85% having commitments and 80% with 2020 commitments.

A total of 577,254 tonnes of Palm Oil has been captured by the scorecard that is attributable to the retail sector, just 6% of the total captured under the scorecard. In line with overall trends, retailers did not perform as well in meeting commitments; 80% of retailers declared that they were using some RSPO but only just over half with a commitment were using 100% RSPO CSPO.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, given the large number of suppliers managed by retailers, only seven retail operators required suppliers to have a zero deforestation policy. This was by far the worst performing sector of all with only 13% meeting this criteria compared to the average at 27%. The retail sector performed similarly poorly with requiring traceability, with 15% requiring traceability to mills, and none requiring traceability to plantations. However, the fact that some of the retailers have made these commitments is an encouraging example that others in the sector can follow.

Retailers scored above average in terms of their commitments beyond their own supply chain with 44% of those assessed claiming to have some actions. 76% of retailers were members of the RSPO and 35% members of some other platform, again in line with across the board averages. Retailers also followed the average in terms of those investing in on the ground initiatives with just under a third reporting that they do so.
