Charkit Chemical has announced its status as a supply chain associate member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), effective Jan. 14, 2018.
The membership authenticates that Charkit can provide sustainable palm oil. Charkit’s Palm Oil RBD is derived from the fruit of the palm oil tree, and is extracted, refined, bleached, deodorized and votated. The multipurpose oil can be applied in the food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.
RSPO, established in 2004, promotes the growth and use of sustainable palm oil products that meet global standards. Headquartered in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the organization’s members include producers, processors, consumer good manufacturers, banks and investors, environmental professionals and more.
Membership, which lasts for a two-year period and is automatically renewed, affords members access to a platform to create and influence policies and key decisions, and best practice information for the agricultural, environmental and social aspects.
