Sustainability awareness for all industries that use palm oil material in their supply chain


The use of non-sustainable palm oil is becoming increasingly unpopular, damaging brand reputation and affecting the sustainability footprint of businesses globally throughout the supply chain. As a result, food and non-food related companies are faced with increased pressure to prove that the palm oil material used in their products from an ethical and sustainable source.

Palm Oil plays an important role in the reduction of poverty for millions of small farmers and their families. In Indonesia and Malaysia itself, more than 4.5 million people depend on palm oil as a source of income, and about 40% of world palm oil production is contributed by small farmers. One of the key contributions towards supporting sustainable palm oil production is responsible sourcing. The RSPO Supply Chain Certification Standard is an independent chain of custody certification aims to prove that palm oil has been acquired in a sustainable and ethical way from certified producers. This standard applies to the entire supply chain following production, including refining, processing, transportation, distribution and manufacturing to provide your business with the traceability required to demonstrate the sustainability of your product.
