Olenex is offering a wide range of products complying with international certification standards. We offer those in both our Liquid oils and Tropical oils portfolio.
The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) has developed a set of environmental and social criteria which companies must comply with in order to produce and process Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO). When properly applied, these criteria minimize the negative impact of palm oil cultivation on the environment and communities in palm oil-producing regions.
Olenex supplies certified palm oil product from two RSPO supply chain models;
Throughout the supply chain, certified palm oil is kept separate from traditional palm oil.
MASS BALANCE (MB)
In this supply chain, certified palm oil is mixed with traditional palm oil.

The International Sustainability & Carbon Certification system ensures sustainable agricultural practices, commitment to no deforestation, and tracking of greenhouse gas emissions throughout the entire supply chain. The ISCC certificate is obtained by producing raw materials free from deforestation, sustainable, and with respect for human rights and honest trade. The ISCC certificate applies to palm, sunflower, rapeseed, and soybean oil.
The ISCC system complies with the following industry standards;
