Ensuring sustainable palm oil production
Palm oil is the most popular and affordable vegetable oil in the world with a wide range of uses ranging from food to cosmeceuticals. It is more resource efficient than other vegetable oils. The palm oil industry is expected to be worth US$88 billion by 2022. The sector also employs about 6 million people worldwide. But palm oil production has also caused deforestation and community conflict in the tropical countries where it is cultivated. In order to ensure palm oil production is managed in a sustainable manner without taking a toll on fragile ecosystems, rules and controls need to be established. Sustainable palm oil production is concerned with making businesses profitable while not adversely affecting the people or environment.
What is MSPO?
The MSPO Certification Scheme is the national scheme in Malaysia for palm oil production certification. MSPO is the Malaysian Sustainable Palm Oil standard against which companies involved in palm oil production are certified. MPOCC, the Malaysian Palm Oil Certification Council, is the MSPO scheme owner and operator. The MSPO certification provides an effective, sustainable and responsible management system that positively impacts social, environmental and economic aspects of palm oil production while mitigating negative impacts. The MSPO standard is in accordance with many existing national laws and regulations in the management of palm oil production.
