Maroon Group, a world-class distributor of specialty chemicals and ingredients in Personal Care, Life Science, Nutraceutical, Electronics, and HI&I markets across North America, is excited to announce that we are now a certified member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO).
As a certified member of RSPO, Maroon Group will partner with Certified Sustainable Palm Oil producers, which comply with a set of environmental and social criteria developed by RSPO. When following these criteria, the negative impact of palm oil cultivation on the environment and communities in palm-oil producing regions is minimized.
Maroon Group strives to be a great corporate citizen and takes pride in associating with companies that value sustainability and environmental responsibility. In addition to becoming a certified member of RSPO, Maroon Group is a member of the global initiatives EcoVadis and SQF, is an active member of NACD, and holds ISO and Responsible Distribution certification that covers every phase of chemical storage, handling, transportation, and disposal. We have also been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for our commitment to reduce waste, improve efficiency, and continuously work to progress as an environmental steward.
"RSPO certification illustrates Maroon’s commitment to formulating sustainable solutions," Walter Martish III, President – Maroon Group CARE, said. "Full supply chain traceability will protect our customer’s brand and sustainable initiatives when using our Palm Kernel derived ingredients."
