BASF’s Care Chemicals division has put a strategic focus on the production of sustainable palm oil which is provided by approximately 40% from smallholders.
In order to foster this approach, the Lampung smallholder project will strengthen smallholders’ commitment to produce palm oil in a sustainable way, protect and respect the environment as well as improve labor practices and relations with the community in Lampung area, Indonesia.
Together with partners a program will be developed where smallholders will receive trainings which empowers them to achieve RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) certification, increase productivity and thus improving their lives.
