Is RSPO Sustainable?

Category: News Published: Monday, 29 August 2016

This was the question to which AOMG Advisor, Ir Qua Kiat Seng, offered some answers at the 4th Oleochemicals Outlook in Bali, Indonesia from 23 – 24 August 2016.

Whilst the availability and uptake of RSPO certified sustainable palm oil has increased rapidly in the last few years, Qua examined some numbers and argued that for the momentum to continue RSPO needs to work harder as well as tweak its operating model. Physical transition for oleochemicals has been in place for just 3 years. AOMG members are SCCS certified and can supply MB and SG products. They report a very low uptake.

As peat smog haze is on the minds of many in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia Qua touched on this. Another issue is costs and Qua also investigated this. He explained the latest development, RSPO Next.
