Impacts

Continuously monitoring the impact of RSPO’s work is essential for the development of our standards. It also helps us assess the ways in which our work contributes to our shared vision of transforming markets to make sustainable palm oil ‘the norm’. In order to achieve this, RSPO is committed to developing, implementing, and improving its Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) system. Our M&E system uses the RSPO’s Theory of Change as a guiding framework, designed to assess progress, performance and impacts of our work, as well as to help inform strategy and drive continuous improvement through learning and adaptive management.
