RSPO and Supply Chain Certification

RSPO and Supply Chain Certification

Helping to Promote Growth and Use of Sustainable Palm Oil

The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) was established as a global, multi-stakeholder initiative “to promote the growth and use of sustainable palm oil through cooperation within the supply chain and open dialogue between its stakeholders.” To meet this one principle objective, the RSPO established an international set of standards for palm oil production, known as “Certification of RSPO Principles and Criteria and Supply Chain Systems”. Any company that works with oil palm plantations, palm oil mills, and in derivative palm oil manufacturing can be RSPO and supply chain certified. TÜV Rheinland is acknowledged by the RSPO as an eligible certification body for RSPO certification.
