Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO)
Palm oil production has increased to meet the edible oil needs of a growing world population resulting in environmental pressures. In response to the urgent and pressing global call for sustainably produced palm oil, the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) was formed in 2004 with the objective of promoting the growth and use of sustainable oil palm products through credible global standards. The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil works to promote mutual understanding and take common actions throughout the entire supply chain as a way forward in addressing economic and sustainability issues. This non-profit organization consists of an impressive list of members who represent major players and stakeholders along the palm oil supply chain; such as oil palm growers, palm oil processors and traders, consumer goods manufacturers, retailers, banks and investors as well as non-governmental agencies that are focused on conservation of the environment and social development issues.
