    *Logos - Orangutan Friendly - black .jpg - .gif or orange .jpg - .gif (right click and save file to use)

    *In order to utilize CMZ's orangutan friendly palm oil logo on product packaging, a company must:

    1. Be a member of RSPO
    2. Purchase palm oil and derivatives solely from producers and suppliers who are members of the RSPO
    3. Keep consumers informed via frequent company website updates, announcing what percentage of certified sustainable palm oil is in their products. 

      At this point in time, companies, plantations and mills who are members of the RSPO have not necessarily reached 100% certified sustainability.  However, as members of RSPO they are taking steps toward sustainability, and are commited and obligated to become 100% certified sustainable by a goal date agreed upon with the RSPO.

    4. Contact Cheyenne Mountain Zoo prior to using the orangutan friendly palm oil logo, email palmoil@cmzoo.org to ask for permission.

    Note:  We strongly encourage NGOs, zoological organizations, etc. to join the RSPO in order to use the logo, but it is not mandatory at this time.
