RSPO - Certified Sustainable Palm Oil

Lubrizol's raw material suppliers are important partners in providing ingredients with Compass Benefits. For this reason, we look for opportunities to bring our suppliers with us on our journey to a more sustainable future.

  • Our Supplier Code of Conduct sets forth Lubrizol’s expectation that our suppliers will support and adhere to Lubrizol’s Code of Ethics. Lubrizol’s Supplier Code ensures that all Lubrizol suppliers clearly understand our standards for ethical procurement practices chain, including the requirement that suppliers comply with all applicable laws and regulations and expressly prohibits unethical practices like forced and child labor, bribery and corruption.  
  • Through our membership in the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) we align ourselves with suppliers who share our commitment to sustainable harvesting and processing of palm kernel oil and derivative raw materials.  
  • Our strategy to obtain RSPO Mass Balance Certification for all facilities that manufacture ingredients that contain this versatile raw material demonstrates our commitment to maintaining the integrity of our sustainable raw materials through our manufacturing process.  
  • Whenever possible, we source our botanical raw materials from local, small farms to increase local investment and reduce transportation carbon footprint.
