RSPO Endorses New Palm Oil Certification Standard
The 16th Annual Roundtable Conference on sustainable palm oil ended last week with more than 850 representatives from the global palm oil industry agreeing to adopt a new certification standard, reports the Malay Mail.
Roundtable of Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) chief executive, Datuk Darrel Webber, welcomed the new principles and said, “Today, we endorsed a universal, transformative, and integrated agenda, intended to strengthen transparency and inclusivity in the RSPO system, increase implementation of the RSPO standard, boost market uptake of SPO through shared responsibilities, and create an enabling environment for our shared vision of market transformation.”
The new standard - P&C (Principles and Criteria) 2018 - intends to bring about economic prosperity, strengthen social development, and protect the environment across the sustainable palm oil value chain.
