TOGETHER, COMMITTED TO SUSTAINABILITY
SASPO (SOUTHEAST ASIA ALLIANCE FOR SUSTAINABLE PALM OIL) was founded in 2016 by WWF-Singapore and five founding companies; Danone, Ayam Brand, Wildlife Reserves Singapore, IKEA and Unilever. The alliance is the first business initiative in ASEAN focusing on sustainable palm oil. Through capacity building, workshops and educational resources, SASPO lowers the barriers for businesses to adopt sustainable sourcing policies.
In 2017, SASPO experienced a 200% spike in new members. Our members represent a great mix of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), local and regional chains, and multinational corporations (MNCs). Bringing to consumers their everlasting favourites while adopting more and more sustainable palm oil into their palm oil supply chain, our member companies are now leading in their respective industries in the realms of sustainable sourcing.
SASPO has received testimonials from the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources (MEWR).
- Mr. Choi Shing Kwok, Permanent Secretary, acknowledged SASPO as a laudable initiative which aims to provide a platform for companies to embark on a journey towards producing, trading and using only certified sustainable palm oil.
- Mr. Masagos Zulkifli has encouraged companies to make the transition to sustainable palm oil by joining like-minded companies to source responsibly through SASPO.
