Nyon, Switzerland - Earthworm Foundation is pleased to welcome Lípidos Santiga (LIPSA), a Barcelona-based oils and fats refiner, as a new member.

Over the coming months, Earthworm Foundation and LIPSA will work to strengthen and update the company's palm oil sustainability policy as well as collaborate on transformation on the ground to ensure forests and people are protected across its entire supply chain.

Earthworm Foundation and LIPSA first collaborated in 2016, via Earthworm Foundation member Vandermoortele, and again in 2018. The focus then was on improving LIPSA's traceability process, engaging with direct suppliers and co-creating a protocol to deal with non-compliant suppliers found to be clearing forests.

LIPSA and Earthworm Foundation will continue to engage with the company's main suppliers to identify opportunities for further collaboration and work joint in the field to create tangible impacts for transformation. Regular progress updates will be provided on the Earthworm Foundation website.

"Our engagement with LIPSA so far has been fruitful. We feel the company is truly committed to making their supply chain a truly responsible one," said Bastien Sachet, Earthworm Foundation's CEO. "So, we're excited to launch into this next phase of transformation with LIPSA and support them to further develop their sustainability policy and ensure those positive strides continue."

"Our membership with Earthworm Foundation is a step forward in our sustainability strategy, which we are committed to. We are sure that through this partnership we will cooperate in building new business strategies, more focused in social and environmentally respectful ways of acting," said Daniel Joaniquet, LIPSA quality and sustainability manager.
