The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) is a not-for-profit organisation, with a main aim of ‘making sustainable palm oil the norm’. RSPO has developed a set of environmental and social standards to ensure sustainably sourced palm oil within supply chains.
Although palm oil is extremely efficient at producing oil on a per hectare basis, if grown unsustainably, this would continue the effect of biodiversity loss, deforestation and the displacement of indigenous people. Once the RSPO standards are followed by members, the negative impacts of palm oil cultivation on the environment and communities in palm oil-producing regions are reduced.
Our main aim is to create crop formulations that deliver environmental and economic benefits. At Croda, switching to sustainable palm versions is made simple, with no changes in the ingredient specification, quality or manufacturing process involved.
Croda are leading the way in the transformation to RSPO certified palm oil derivatives and are continually striving to increase transparency in our raw material supply chains. Croda work closely with RSPO, achieving CSPO at 14 of our manufacturing sites, providing us with a wider range of sustainable palm oil derived ingredients. We have recently strengthened our commitment by working with a third-party organisation to confirm and verify transparency of our supply chains down to the plantation level for palm oil derivatives.
