Sustainable Palm Oil

Palm oil is the most widely used vegetable oil, and can be found in everything from snacks to household products and even cosmetics. About 58.84 million tons of palm oil are produced every year, with Indonesia and Malaysia accounting for 85 percent of total global supply.

In brief, sustainable palm oil is a product made under policies that promise no deforestation, no peat development, and no exploitation. Palm oil can be sustainable, but we all have an important role to play to ensure that it becomes the norm. We can start by learning more about the problems, supporting brands that have pledged to become sustainable.

Sintong Abadi commitment to producing and sourcing palm oil in an economical, environmentally sustainable and socially responsible manner is embodied in the philosophy of “No Deforestation, No Peat and No Exploitation.” We are taking action to increase transparency, improve engagement with stakeholders, verify progress and help transform the industry.
