Holchem becomes a member of the RSPO

Blog | 30 April 2018

We’re delighted to announce that Holchem has been accepted as a Supply Chain Associate Member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO).

It means that any palm oil derived surfactants we buy are supported under sustainable sourcing and forms an important part of our environmental policy. The RSPO has developed a set of environmental and social criteria which companies must comply with in order to produce certified Sustainable Palm Oil.  When applied the criteria can help to minimise the negative impact of palm oil cultivation on the environment and communities in palm oil producing regions.

“The RSPO was established in 2004 to promote the production and use of sustainable Palm Oil for People, Planet, and Prosperity. Our associate membership is a great achievement for Holchem and forms a really important part of our environmental statement.  We are constantly evolving and implementing our policies and are particularly pleased to be part of the RSPO.”

Jim Taylour, Technical Manager at Holchem.
