Eleven manufacturing sites, handling over 99% of the palm derivative volumes, are now Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil Supply Chain Certified (RSPO SCC) via physical supply chains, thus meeting Croda’s corporate target to have RSPO certification of all its relevant supply chains by the end of 2015.

The site in Jurong Island, Singapore was the first site to be certified in 2012, and in 2015 the final four sites in Gouda, the Netherlands, Leek, UK, Chocques, France and Hull, UK all received certification from the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), a non-profit, multi stakeholder organisation dedicated to promoting sustainable production of palm oil worldwide.

The group’s plant in Latin America, which is located in Campinas, near Sao Paulo, Brazil, completed the certification process in 2014.

Croda can now handle CSPO materials from facilities in Asia Pacific, Europe, South America and North America.

Supporting CSPO is a material issue in our sustainability programme. We consider this to be a global concern and our efforts are consistent in all regions, as exemplified by certification and manufacture in Asia, Europe and the Americas. Beyond necessary support for RSPO and sustainable palm, Croda is committed to reducing its contribution to deforestation and any resultant impacts on climate change and biodiversity by working with organisations such as the RSPO and suppliers and customers to ensure traceability of critical raw materials back to suitably accredited sources,” said Chris Sayner, VP of Global Accounts at Croda.
