Two more BASF Group’s production plants have received the Supply Chain Certificate of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), as announced on the occasion of the RSPO’s fifth annual European Roundtable in London. The certification of the two plants i.e. Dahej (Gujarat, India) and Gebze (Turkey), helps further strengthen BASF’s operations network for certified palm products. At 20 locations around the world, now including Dahej, BASF manufactures certified ingredients for the cosmetic, detergent and cleaning agent industries, from products derived from sustainable palm oil sources.
“Sustainability is becoming increasingly important in South Asia. BASF is committed to providing local customers with sustainable palm products. With our site in Dahej, India, now certified according to the RSPO supply chain standard, we are able to offer the optimal conditions required for customers to change over to certified ingredients and therefore jointly transform the market towards sustainable products along the entire value chain,” said Rahul Tilve, Vice President Operations, Care Chemicals, Asia Pacific.
