Innospec became an ordinary member of the RSPO in August 2013. RSPO is an organization established to promote the growth and use of certified sustainable palm oil (CSPO). It has developed a set of environmental and social criteria which companies must comply with in order to produce CSPO derived products.
To demonstrate support for the production and use of sustainable palm oil, Innospec committed to achieving RSPO MB certification for all relevant manufacturing sites by the end of 2015, and it achieved its target ahead of schedule.
All relevant Innospec manufacturing sites have gained the externally accredited RSPO MB multi-site certification. This certification enables Innospec to offer CSPO derived products where supported by the supply chain.
“We are one of the first personal care companies to achieve accreditation for all of our relevant manufacturing sites. We are extremely proud of this achievement, not only because we have gained the certification well ahead of our initial target, but because it will enable us to support our customers’ sustainability goals and objectives,” added Patrick S. Williams, [resident and CEO.
The RSPO MB supply chain model administratively monitors the trade of RSPO-certified palm oil and its derivatives throughout the entire supply chain, as a driver for mainstream trade in sustainable palm oil. The use of RSPO MB palm oil and its derivatives supports the production of RSPO Certified Sustainable Palm Oil.
