We are proud to announce that Amerilure has become a Supply Chain Associate of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). Based in Zurich, Switzerland, RSPO is an international non-profit association that unifies the palm oil industry to create comprehensive standards towards sustainability. This is done by collaborating on research, defining what constitutes ‘palm oil sustainability’ and how we can efficiently achieve this, develop better practices throughout the manufacturing process, and educating others on these findings. Overall, the goal is to reduce the adverse effect of palm oil production on the environment & manufacturing communities by promoting the usage of certified sustainable palm oil.
A Supply Chain Associate RSPO membership is given to companies that annually purchase less than 500 metric tons of palm oil products. We are excited to be a part of this organization because RSPO members also promote responsibility and transparency in the manufacturing, purchasing, and usage of palm oil. It is required that members adhere to a code of conduct that promotes fair business practices. We encourage others to look into the RSPO organization and consider becoming a member.
