LEVACO: Sustainability for us and future generations
With the growing awareness of the issues of the greenhouse effect and climate change, the area of sustainability in the company takes on a significant strategic role for LEVACO - proactively, long before legal regulations can take effect in the future. Sustainability management thus assumes elementary importance at the highest level!
"The issue of sustainability is so important to us that we cannot afford to talk about banalities here. It affects us all, our children, the next generations, even ourselves already. Instead, we need to have a serious discussion about what measures will really have a positive effect on the climate to counteract climate change."

Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO)
A significant step towards increased sustainability is LEVACO's membership in the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), which is aiming to establish sustainably produced and traded palm oil as the norm along the entire supply chain.
The emphasis is on “sustainable” which includes
- halting deforestation to reduce CO2 pollution,
- treating communities and workers fairly and
- protecting wildlife and the environment.
Our membership is a condition for the certification of our products. Our product range is subject to a strict audit in order to get certifications for each specific product. This involves screening the entire supply chain for the use of sustainably produced palm oil.
Contact us if you are interested in additives for your certified product with sustainably grown palm oil. We will include these additives in our certification audit as a priority!
