Why Palm Oil?
We use palm oil for a variety of reasons. Due to its great cooking properties, natural preservative effect and its use as fuel for car and power plants, palm oil is widely used all over the world. However, palm oil cultivation causes deforestation in some reasons and has resulted in some malpractices by plantations in certain regions.
The Need for Sustainability
In light of the negative impacts of palm oil cultivation, in 1998 the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) developed rules so that companies can minimize these adverse effects. When these rules are complied, palm oil companies will have their products marked as Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO).
Why Sustainability is

Respecting environmental limits and being considerate about the future of our society, commercial success will continue to flourish.
We are resolved in thriving with the world not just economically but also socially and environmentally.
