Palm fruit oil and palm seed oil (the latter also called palm kernel oil) are vegetable oils obtained from oil palms. The use of palm oil has grown steadily in recent years, so much so that it has become not only one of the main ingredients of the food industry but also a very important raw material in various sectors, such as cosmetics. For this reason, has emerged the need to provide precise standards that can promote the growth and use of palm oil-based products resulting from the responsible management of oil palm plantations that have now become so important for numerous production chains.
WHAT is RSPO?
RSPO – Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil is a non-profit association that aims to promote the cultivation and use of sustainable palm oil through global certification standards. The main objective of RSPO is therefore to encourage not only the cultivation but also the use of sustainable palm oil in order to reduce the environmental and social impacts resulting from the cultivation of this type of oil.
The RSPO certification is therefore the main international sustainability standard that guarantees the production and trade of palm oil obtained without damaging the living conditions of the communities and local biodiversity.
To promote this kind of sustainable business, RSPO has four different types of models/certifications:
- Preservation of identity
- Mass balance
- Book and Claim
While the first three models allow the physical control of palm oil throughout the supply chain, the last supports the production of sustainable palm oil through the sale of certificates.
ECSA and RSPO
After becoming full members of the RSPO in February 2019, our commitment to commercializing certified palm oil continued. ECSA Chemicals has in fact obtained the RSPO certification, MB model, which certifies compliance with all the criteria provided by the Association in all the different phases of the supply chain: starting from the choice of products to storage in our warehouses up to resale to ours. customers.
Attention to sustainable production practices has always been one of the main criteria we adopt in the choice of our suppliers and in the selection of products to be marketed. The RSPO certification allows us to respond to customer requests and requirements, concerning their commitment in terms of product sustainability, allowing them to place on the market, in multiple application sectors, controlled and guaranteed products. In this way, we generate a virtuous circle for the environment and for consumers, who benefit from the finished product.
