R.S.P.O. (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil)

The R.S.P.O. has developed 8 base principles and 39 criteria for the production of sustainable palm oil. An important criterion is that new plantations can not replace primary forest areas or areas of high conservation value.

The other criteria relate to respecting the rights of the local inhabitants and employees, and preservation of the natural habitat of endangered species.

Palm oil and fractionated products are available both segregated and/or mass balance.
