Sustainable Palm Oil Certification Reaches 21 Percent Penetration

Submitted by on June 14, 2017 – 3:03 pmNo Comment

by Matt Rudolf (SCS Global Services/Biodiesel Magazine) Industry by industry, third-party certification of sustainability performance is increasingly helping to move the dial toward more responsible production and supply chain practices in line with UN Sustainable Development Goals. Nowhere is this more apparent that in the case of palm oil.

Within the past few years, palm oil certification under the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil standard has reached a remarkable 21 percent penetration of the global market. This watershed achievement is paving the way for product manufacturers to incorporate certified palm oil into their product ingredient specifications, shifting entire industries and making a positive difference for people and the planet.

Increased certification penetration is being driven not only by growing consumer demand and pressure from retail buyers, but also by governmental actions. For instance, in Europe, the European Parliament has called for a clampdown on the imports of unsustainable palm oil for use in biofuel, and is proposing that unlike other biofuels sold in the EU, a single approved certification scheme for palm oil be used.

Why is this so important?

Palm oil enjoys tremendous popularity. It is the most widely used vegetable oil in the world, accounting for one-third of all vegetable oil consumption. Its uses span a wide range of products, including processed foods, cosmetics and body care products, detergents, and biofuels.  READ MORE
