Clariant to offer certified sustainable palm-based materials

Clariant’s plant in Gendorf, Germany, has obtained the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) Mass Balance supply chain certification. The supplier of specialty chemicals will therefore be able to meet the increasing demand for sustainable certified palm-based ingredients from customers in the personal care and home care sectors.

Gendorf is the first of Clariant’s plants to be RSPO certified and the company thus progresses its target to continuously increase the offer of certified palm based products and to have all relevant production sites certified by 2016.

The use of certified renewable raw materials like palm-based oleochemicals in our products and processes is an important element in integrating sustainability into our operations and attaining our goals of sustainability leadership and value creation for our customers,” said Hariolf Kottmann, CEO Clariant. “Sustainability and innovation are pillars of Clariant’s business strategy and sustainable raw materials are significant for the development of innovative, future-oriented products.

Clariant uses olechemicals derived from palm-based oils in its surfactants, emulsifiers and preservatives for personal care and home care products. “RSPO certification will provide assurance to our customers and consumers that products coming from these plants derive from sustainable palm oil. We are proud to be a forerunner within our industry in following this path and in working together with our supply chain toward transparency and a responsible and sustainable use and sourcing of renewable raw materials,” comments Michael Willome, Global Head of Business Unit Industrial & Consumer Specialties.
