What is RSPO?
The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) was formed in 2004 in order to promote the use of sustainable palm oil products through the introduction of a credible standard, and for the collaboration amongst all contributors in this chain.
Palm oil is an ingredient present in a very wide assortment of food products, underscoring the importance of sustainable production practices of palm oil for the environment and for society.
What is RSPO Certification?
The RSPO standard reflects the continuous striving for and pursuit of
- more sustainable cultivation practices
- appropriate working conditions
- the safeguarding and retention of biodiversity
Throughout the entire chain, the RSPO system further guarantees that the palm oil that meets these strict standards effectively originates from an RSPO-certified palm oil plantation.
