At Sime Darby Plantation (SDP), we have long made a commitment towards creating a deforestation-free supply chain. We believe the frontier to halting deforestation is traceability and in 2019, we launched ‘Crosscheck’, an open source online traceability tool that is available for everyone.
‘Crosscheck’ helps provide transparency by tracking supply back to its source, identifying where problems exist – and taking action that is clearly outlined in our 'Working with Suppliers to Draw the Line on Deforestation’ policy statement. (Please click here to view the statement).
The tool was designed to be developed further and after a year of collaborations with NGOs and other relevant stakeholders, the new and improved version - ‘Crosscheck 2.0’, is now available, providing further visibility on our plantations, mills, refineries and third-party suppliers.
With this upgraded version, users can view:
- A map showing all the mills that supply each of SDP’s refineries and information on who owns these mills. The new version allows for users to view all the mills in our Sime Darby Oils’ (SDO) entire supply chain or each refinery’s supply chain
- The updated Crosscheck 2.0 includes details on traceability to plantations, where available. At present, Sime Darby Oils' supply chain is 47% traceable to plantations.
- The mills are also categorised based on our grievance register status with a summary of the cases and a link to the register that has been integrated into the map.
- Crosscheck 2.0 also allows users to view SDP and SDO’s conservation projects globally.
We also value your feedback and would like to hear from you too. Try our 'Crosscheck' tool today and let us know how we can improve it further.
