Malaysian Sustainable Palm 

What is MSPO ?

The MSPO Certification Scheme is a national program designed to ensure responsible management of oil palm cultivation and production of palm oil and its products in Malaysia. It goes beyond the standard good agricultural practices and encompasses various aspects of sustainability and social responsibility. The scheme guarantees the well-being of workers in plantations, smallholdings, and palm oil processing facilities, including their health and safety, fair compensation, and access to proper training. By obtaining MSPO certification, businesses demonstrate their commitment to sustainable practices and the welfare of their employees.

Requirements of MSPO ?

The MSPO Standards consist of seven (7) principles that serve as the foundation for a comprehensive management system framework. These principles are built upon the pillars of sustainability, encompassing economic viability, social acceptability, and environmental soundness. The standards provide a holistic approach to ensure that palm oil cultivation and production in Malaysia align with sustainable practices and contribute to the well-being of society, the environment, and the economy.
