Organisation's Commitments Toward Sustainability

  • How will your organisation promote the RSPO internally and to other stakeholders?
    We will use the membership in our communications to our suppliers and customers. We will announce to all employees or membership and promote the cause to ask them to look for the RSPO certification in the products they buy.
  • Where relevant, what processes is the organisation establishing to engage with interested parties, for example to resolve conflict or to use sustainably produced palm oil?
    As a consumer of fatty acids, fatty alcohols and glycerine, we will make sure we have the proper data to back up any claims.
  • Where relevant, how will your organisation work towards implementing the RSPO Principles and Criteria or assessing supplier performance against these criteria?
    We have a policy that states we will only source palm and palm kernel from members of the RSPO. At this time it is difficult to certify the entire supply chain but we will work down the line to have all companies become members join.
  • Any other information that would support the application such as what your organisation hopes to gain from joining RSPO and how it would support RSPO?
    We will only buy from RSPO plantation and processing companies and follow all rules for being a member that uses the downstream product.
