Palm Oil and Palm Kernel Oil
At Innospec, we recognize that the increasing demand for palm oil and palm kernel oil has, in some parts of the world, led to the rapid expansion of palm oil plantations, which can have an adverse effect on the environment and the indigenous species living in these areas.
Innospec is a member of the RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) and as a socially responsible company is committed at the highest level within the organization to the sourcing and use of sustainable palm oil, palm kernel oil and their derivatives.
To achieve these commitments, all applicable Innospec manufacturing sites are now RSPO mass balance supply chain certified. We continue to work with our suppliers of oleo chemicals to ensure that all of the palm oil and palm kernel oil derived raw materials we consume will be from sustainable sources based on the principles and criteria of the RSPO mass balance supply chain model. RSPO mass balance certified products are available on request.
These measures will ensure that all of our palm oil and palm kernel oil based personal care products are produced only from sustainable mass balance certified raw materials. Innospec believes this is the right course of action for our customers, the environment and our future.
