How will your organisation promote the RSPO internally and to other stakeholders?
WE HAVE ACTIVELY PROMOTED RSPO CERTIFIED OLEOCHEMICALS AND SURFACTANTS TO SEVERAL CUSTOMERS ACROSS THE GLOBE, AND ACTIVELY ENGAGING WITH MANUFACTURERS HAVING RSPO SUPPLY CHAIN CERTIFICATIONS TO BE OUR PREFERRED SURFACTANTS SUPPLY PARTNER / PRINCIPAL. THIS FURTHER ALLOWS US TO EXPAND OUR SUSTAINABLE PRODUCT RANGE TO CUSTOMERS WORLDWIDE.
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?
RSPO MEMBERSHIP AND / OR CERTIFICATION IS A PRIMARY AND IMPORTANT QUESTION WHICH WE POSE TO SUPPLIERS, AND THOSE WHO HAVE MEMBERSHIP AND CERTIFICATION ARE OUR PREFERRED SUPPLY SOURCES. IN ORDER TO ENSURE COMPLIANCE THROUGHOUT THE SUPPLY CHAIN, WE ALSO FURTHER REQUEST FROM OUR RESPECTIVE CUSTOMERS TO INFORM US IF THEY ARE RSPO LICENSED AND / OR CERTIFIED TO TRADE IN RSPO CERTIFIED PRODUCTS.
Where relevant, how will your organisation work towards implementing the RSPO Principles and Criteria or assessing supplier performance against these criteria?
MAJORITY OF OUR CURRENT SUPPLIERS ARE ALREADY MEMBERS OF RSPO AND CERTIFIED THROUGH INDEPENDENT CERTIFICATION BODIES TO PRODUCE AND SELL RSPO CERTIFIED PRODUCTS. WE MOSTLY TRADE ONLY WITH LARGE MULTINATIONAL CORPORATIONS AS OUR CORE SUPPLIERS. WE WILL ALWAYS REQUEST FOR A COPY OF THE SUPPLIER'S MOST RECENT, VALID CERTIFICATE.
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 ARE ALREADY ACTIVE IN THE GLOBAL TRADE OF OLEOCHEMICALS AND SURFACTANTS FOR THE LAST 10 YEARS. IT IS OUR INTEREST TO BUILD ON THE GROWING REQUIREMENTS FOR SUSTAINABILITY ESPECIALLY IN THE USE OF PALM OIL/PALM KERNEL OIL DERIVATIVES, TO SERVE OUR CUSTOMERS WHICH ARE ALSO SLOWLY MOVING DOWN THIS PATH AS WELL. FOLLOWING THE MEMBERSHIP APPROVAL, WE WOULD PROCEED TO APPLY FOR A TRADER'S LICENSE TO QUALIFY TO TRADE RSPO CERTIFIED OLEOCHEMICALS AND DERIVATIVES. WE DO NOT TRADE IN PALM OIL ITSELF.
