BASF hits 2021 sustainable palm oil commitment target

BASF hit its 2021 goal of sourcing all palm (kernel) oils certified from sustainable sources by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO).

Based on a voluntary commitment, the company purchased 242,946 metric tonnes of certified palm kernel oil last year, representing 100% of the total procurement volume.

BASF also made further progress in developing transparent supply chains: almost 96% of the company’s global oil palm footprint – a total of 441,107 metric tonnes – can be traced back to the oil mill where it was produced.

Compared with conventional sourcing, BASF avoided more than 330,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions.

These figures are among some of the details featured in the company’s sixth edition of its Palm Progress Report, which has now been published.

BASF said it is now fully focused on the next part of its voluntary commitment made in 2015: to expand it to those significant intermediates which are based on palm oil and palm kernel oil by 2025.

These include fractions, primary oleochemical derivatives, and vegetable oil esters.
