What is RSPO?

In response to the urgent and pressing global call for sustainable 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 and engagement of stakeholders.

The RSPO is a global non-profit initiative that unites stakeholders from the seven sectors of the palm oil industry: oil palm producers, processors or traders, consumer goods manufacturers, retailers, banks/investors, and environmental and social non-governmental organisations (NGOs), to develop and implement global standards for sustainable palm oil.

RSPO Certified Sustainable Palm Oil is internationally recognised. Moreover, membership demonstrates a first step towards commitment to sustainable palm oil.
