Each year, 71 million tons of palm products are manufactured globally. Around 10% of this is palm kernel oil. This represents approximately seven million tons of palm kernel oil, of which only about 1.3 million tons are currently RSPO-certified. For many years, BASF has advocated to make sustainable oil palm products the industry standard in the cosmetics, detergents and cleaning agent industries.
