Producers work to ensure palm oil is responsibly sourced

Much of the concern about oil sustainability focuses on palm oil as it has been linked to deforestation, which negatively impacts the environment, forest wildlife and the communities where it’s grown. The Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) aims to make sustainable palm oil the norm around the world, according to its website, www.rspo.org. 

“Segregated certified palm oil products must be produced according to the principles and criteria established by the RSPO, which verifies that forests are protected and social and environmental safeguards are met during the oil’s production and harvest,” said Tai Ullmann, sustainability lead, global edible oil solutions, Cargill. “To carry the segregated RSPO designation, all products must be kept separate from commodity palm oil supplies and be traceable throughout the supply chain. It is produced on RSPO-certified sustainable palm oil plantations and refined at RSPO-certified facilities.”

Dekel Agri-Vision PLC (LON:DKL) aspires to become a leading agro-industrial company in West Africa, one that creates value for shareholders whilst at all times placing the interests of the local communities and environment in which it operates in at the heart of its operations.
