The ACOP report submissions are mandatory for all Ordinary and Affiliate members that have been members of RSPO for at least one year. However, ACOP report submissions are voluntary for all Supply Chain Associates as well as for Ordinary and Affiliate members who have not yet completed a full year of RSPO membership.
The ACOP 2019 also incorporates a new set of basic Shared Responsibility indicators that will provide the baseline data for the implementation of Shared Responsibility. This will be used to inform the ongoing development of the Shared Responsibility directives that aim to make sustainable palm oil the norm.
We look forward to your cooperation and hope you have a successful ACOP reporting year. Should you have any enquiries, please contact [email protected]
