Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO)

Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) Certification focuses on sustainable palm plantations that are used for the production of palm oil and its downstream products. Companies that are RSPO Supply Chain Certified showcase a compliance to internationally recognized sustainable practices that lead back to the sustainably managed palm oil plantation.

RSPO follows 8 core principles for plantations and mills that are necessary for certification.

  • Commitment to transparency
  • Compliance with applicable laws and regulations
  • Commitment to long-term economic and financial viability
  • Use of appropriate best practices by growers and millers
  • Environmental responsibility and conservation of natural resources and biodiversity
  • Responsible consideration of employees and of individuals and communities affected by growers and mills
  • Responsible development of new plantings
  • Commitment to continuous improvement in key areas of activity

Much like other chain of custody certifications, RSPO Supply Chain Certification gives your products recognition and consumers the assurance that your products follow a sustainable supply chain from farm to consumer. The supply chain certification applies to every facility that makes product-related claims regarding the use of certified palm oil derivatives. It regulates the handling, storage, transport, trade, refining process, packaging and even labeling of sustainable palm oil products.
