Responsible Palm Oil Sourcing

Palm oil is the most widely used and consumed vegetable oil in the world. Found in everyday products, from foods to cosmetics, palm oil is also a key raw material in the mold release used in plastics production, ensuring the integrity of the material and leading to less waste.

As the global demand for palm oil grows, concerns have been raised about clearing rainforests to plant oil palm plantations. Trinseo is committed to obtaining our raw materials from the most appropriate sources, in alignment with our commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility. We acquire our mold release from suppliers that utilize a consortium that has been certified by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). An RSPO certification confirms that oil palm plantations where the oil is harvested are not associated with deforestation.
