The Push for Sustainable Palm Oil

 

 

Each year the RSPO asks its members to submit their time bound plans (TBP) for achieving 100% certified sustainable palm oil in their supply chains, production, and sales.
 
The table below shows time bound plans for RSPO member Consumer Goods Manufacturers reported as of July 2013. 

 
Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil

Delegates (above) are pictured at the eighth annual Roundtable Meeting on Sustainable Palm Oil (RT8) held in Jakarta in November 2010. The Roundtable gathering each year is the world's largest meeting about sustainable palm oil production where stakeholders from government, private sector, and human rights and environmental organizations get together to discuss how to tackle the challenges of producing sustainable palm oil.

 

Green Prospect Asia dedicated its September 2011 monthly magazine to the business of palm oil.
