Ethical Score: Products are ranked on a scoring system of 1-20, with 20 being the best score. Companies that do not use palm oil or their derivatives score 20. Products that contain 100% Fairtrade palm oil also score 20. Companies that use it but make no substantial policy statements and are not members of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil score 0. For a full breakdown of the methodology, please visit www.ethicalconsumer.org.

Traffic Light System: Green - the best buys!  Amber - read the company's policy carefully to understand the impact of your purchase.  Red - consider one of the products in the green section instead.
