RSPO Certification

The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certification is a globally recognized standard for sustainable palm oil production. Established in 2004, RSPO aims to promote environmentally and socially responsible practices in the palm oil industry, addressing concerns such as deforestation, habitat destruction, and human rights violations.
