Marketplace and Supply Chain

We aim to build a traceable and transparent supply chain and we support the production of RSPO products.

Responsible Palm Oil

At IOI, we are committed to the production of palm oil in a sustainable manner based on economic, social and environment viability. Our parent company, IOI Corporation is a founding member of RSPO and is on executive board. With their active contribution and support, IOI Oleochemicals aspires to supply our customers with products from sustainable and environmental friendly practices. Today, all IOI Oleochemical facilities have successfully obtained the RSPO Supply Chain Certification.

Oleochemicals can be difficult to source from sustainable sources due to its very long and highly complex supply chains. Our products are midstream products which will be used by one or more players along the supply chain before they reach end consumers. Realising the importance of our role in supplying sustainable products in the supply chains, like our parent company IOI Corporation, we also take part in global palm initiatives and work actively with various stakeholders in order to drive change for oleoderivatives.

In May 2012, IOI Oleochemical led the ASEAN Oleochemical Manufacturer’s Group (AOMG) on RSPO and work closely with major oleochemical producers on matters relating to RSPO-certified oleochemicals. IOI Oleochemical is a Steering Committee member of the RSPO Oleochemical and Derivatives Working Group which drafts the RSPO Rules on Oleochemicals and Derivatives, as well as a member of the RSPO Trade and Traceability Standing Committee (T&T SC) that contributes to the interest of trade, traceability and related matters with respect to RSPO-certified Oleochemicals and Derivatives.

We were among the first to supply the RSPO Mass Balance and Segregated oleochemicals and we are still promoting and encouraging more use of RSPO certified products.
