WWF China invites all the organizations and stakeholders which are interested in supporting the promotion of sustainable palm oil in China, to participate in 3rd Meeting of Network for Promoting Sustainable Palm Oil in China.

The China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Foodstuff, Native Produce and Animal By-products (CFNA) and WWF China launched the Network for Promoting Sustainable Palm Oil in China during the China International Oils and Oilseeds Industry Summit in Beijing in July 2009.

The objectives of the Network are:

  • To support the promotion, procurement and use of sustainable palm oil in China,
  • To support the production of sustainable palm oil through any investments in producing countries that are consistent with the principles for sustainable palm oil production, national laws and China's guidelines for sustainable agriculture.

China is currently the world’s largest importer of palm oil, accounting for one third of all global trade. Increasing demand for palm oil, which is used in everything from soap to chocolate bars, is causing considerable damage to fragile rainforest environments, threatening endangered species like tigers, and contributing to global climate change.
