At TREDIS, we are aware that we must be able to offer consumers products that are safe for humans and for the environment. Our wide range of vegetable-based products enables us to meet this growing demand for natural products.
By favoring vegetable-based raw materials and committing to a sustainable approach in all our markets, our soap noodles, esters and other products for use in cosmetics and detergents are predominantly made from natural ingredients, free from all unnecessary components. They can therefore be used in environmentally friendly and organic formulations.
A long-term commitment
We wish to commit to our partners for the long term because we consider that each and every stakeholder is important. Since TREDIS was first set up, we have attached great importance to building long-term partnerships based on mutual trust.
With this in mind, TREDIS works with long-standing suppliers who are able to provide high-quality products in due time.
This approach can also be seen in our relationships with our customers. Communication is a key priority and we work to provide our customers with the best solutions for their business. We strive to be flexible in our work and to provide specialist advice.
Our reputation here at TREDIS has been built on our constant concern for our customers, our employees, our partners and the world in which we live.
Palm oil and RSPO
At TREDIS, we believe in using natural, renewable raw materials. As a member of RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) since 2011, we promote this initiative and distribute a wide range of oleochemical products derived from natural vegetable oils.
Respecting the environment and protecting natural resources
At Tredis, respecting the environment and protecting natural resources is a priority. This sustainable approach is formalized by:
- Our COSMOS certification, which requires that our ingredients come from renewable resources and are transformed using environmentally friendly processes.
- Exemplary compliance with regulatory requirements regarding products, workers’ rights and environmental protection.
- TREDIS is a member of RSPO, an initiative that aims to implement sustainability principles and criteria. TREDIS also has RSPO Supply Chain certification, which applies to all stages in our transformation and distribution processes, from production through to the store shelf. The aim is to guarantee traceability of sustainable palm oil through to final consumption.
- Distribution of cosmetic ingredients that are compatible with COSMOS formulations or any other natural/organic label (COSMOS, NaTrue, BDIH etc.), with the aim of reducing our impact on the environment.
RSPO members are from a wide variety of different backgrounds, particularly farmers, manufacturers and distributors of oil palm derived products; environmental and social NGOs; and numerous countries that either produce or consume palm oil products.
The principal aim of RSPO is to “promote the use and growth of sustainable palm oil through cooperation within the supply chain and through open dialog between stakeholders”.
The Roundtable has implemented two certification systems:
- to guarantee that palm oil is produced sustainably in plantations
- to guarantee the integrity of palm oil trade, by monitoring each stage of palm oil transformation and commercialization, from production through to the store shelf. The aim is to guarantee traceability of sustainable palm oil through to final consumption. There are several RSPO traceability standards: Identity Preserved (IP), Segregated (SG) or Mass Balanced (MB).
Both of these systems involve external certification organizations. Thanks to these rigorous certification systems, oil manufacturers and consumers can be certain that their products really do contain or support sustainable palm oil.
By becoming a member of RSPO in 2011, Tredis took its sustainability approach to the next level.
▪ In 2014 Tredis furthered its commitment through RSPO Supply Chain certification.
▪ Since then, Tredis has been supplying palm oil based products that are certified “Mass Balance” and “Segregated”.
