Certification for fair trade and responsible supply chains
Impact, special achievements & commitmentsThe topics protection of the environment and sustainability are important parts of the corporate policy and procurement strategy of LIPWIT. Therefore LIPWIT commits oneself to a continuous improvement of the working and environmental conditions.
Around 14 mio litres argan oil are produced per year, exclusively in Morocco. More than 80 % of the total argan oil production is from small farmers and women cooperatives. It is important to avoid child labour. A further challenge is the decreasing tree population due to tree cutting resulting in an enlargement of the desert.
The aim of LIPWIT is to improve the living conditions of the families participating in the argan oil production, as well as measures to maintain the argan tree and to support the cultivation of further argan trees.
Sustainable economic activities along the value chain mean for LIPWIT:
• Guarantee of social minimum standards for farmers in the cultivation areas in the context of internationally accepted sustainable standards such as Fair Trade.
• Long-term support to a social and environmental argan oil production.
• Fulfillment of the needs of their customers: Guarantee of the availability of sustainable, Fair Trade produced argain oil.
• Use of sustainable argain oil as a component of high-quality products. The only Fair Trade product with which they trade is argan oil. They purchase it only via ArganOleo in Straubing.
