The label of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) was established to offer sustainably produced palm oil. Palm oil bearing the RSPO label guarantees that at least 95% of the palm oil used in a product has been produced sustainably.
The label of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) was created to provide sustainable palm oil on the market. Palm oil with the RSPO label guarantees that at least 95% of the palm oil used in a product was produced sustainably. RSPO certified palm oil does not contribute to the destruction of natural forests or the habitats of endangered species. In addition, requirements include criteria in relation to the use of pesticides, wastewater management, energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Furthermore, the focus is on respecting the rights of workers and local communities.
Companies that process or trade products containing palm oil can prove through supply chain certification that the palm oil is sustainably sourced. If your company joins our group certificate, you will be allowed to use the RSPO label on products and for promotional purposes, and your company will be included in the international database of RSPO certified companies.

Palm oil can be found in countless products but is also notorious for deforestation of tropical rainforest. Large areas that were once covered with primeval forest are still being converted to palm oil plantations, often without consulting the local communities. Workers' rights are also regularly violated. The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) wants to counter these practices by stimulating trade in sustainable palm oil.
