L.V. Lomas now member of the RSPO

February 6, 2017

We are pleased to announce our new membership with the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). The RSPO was founded in 2004 and has since been transforming the palm oil industry to make sustainable palm oil the norm. To produce Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO), companies must comply with a set of environmental and social criteria developed by the RSPO. These can help to minimize the negative impact of palm oil cultivation on the environment and communities in palm oil-producing regions. As a part of the palm oil supply chain, we are proud to participate in this noble effort. This is just one of the initiatives L.V. Lomas has taken as part of our commitment to sustainability.
