   Business Challenge

Today, palm oil has become the first oil crop in the world with 40 million tons produced just in 2009.Palm oil, used both for food and non-food industries, has a main role in the economic development of palm oil producing countries and in the nourishment of millions of people.

However, after a sharp increase of palm oil plantation surface area from the 1990s to the present day as well as pressures on the environment and on local populations, a global reaction from the palm oil production chain and stakeholders is required. Using RSPO certified Palm Oil commits your company to sustainability while maintaining a sufficient supply of palm oil without damaging the living conditions of indigenous communities and the biodiversity of adjacent ecosystems.


What is the RSPO?

Founded in 2004, the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil is a not-for-profit association with the objective to promote the growth and use of sustainable palm oil. Seven sectors of the palm oil industry take part in the decision process including producers, processors or traders, manufacturers, retailers, banks and investors, environmental conservation NGOs and social or developmental NGOs.


RSPO Supply Chain Certification Systems: An Explanation

RSPO Supply Chain Certification Systems is a standard to certify conformity of supply chains using RSPO certified sustainable palm oil or products derived thereof. The objective is to involve the entire supply chain, by reaching out to the consumer.
Several traceability models are available: Identity Preserved (IP), Segregated (SG), or Mass Balanced (MP).It addresses millers, refiners, processors, manufacturers, traders, retailers and others stakeholders from the supply chain.


What are the key benefits?

 ·  Addresses client needs and meets their expectations regarding commitment to sustainable palm oil products.

 ·  Complies with expectations of major distributors and retailers to prove sustainability of products.

 ·  Demonstrates the quality of your commitment to follow environmental practices and sustainable business.

 ·  Uses your sustainable palm oil certificate for multiple industries such as food processing, chemistry, biofuel, etc.

 ·  Attests to your employees that they are working in a sustainable and socially responsible company.



How can I use the RSPO logo to promote my business?

“This product contains certified sustainable palm oil. www.rspo.info”

“Contributes to the production of certified sustainable palm. www.rspo.info”
