RSPO is pleased to announce that the Annual Communication of Progress (ACOP) 2022 is now open for submissions. ACOP reports must be made via the MyRSPO member portal by Friday 19 May 2023 at 12:00 AM (midnight) MYT (UTC+8).

The submission of an ACOP report is mandatory for all Ordinary and Affiliate members who have been with RSPO for at least one year. It is voluntary for all Supply Chain Associates, and Ordinary and Affiliate members who have not completed a full year of RSPO Membership.

To help members prepare for ACOP 2022, we created:

Additionally, all Ordinary, non-grower RSPO Members who need to comply with the Shared Responsibility (SR) requirements are to report compliance through the Shared Responsibility section of the ACOP report. The Shared Responsibility section of ACOP report has been streamlined and improved to align with the SR requirements. Evidence to show compliance with the SR requirements should be uploaded via the membership profile in MyRSPO.

To ensure you receive the latest communications from the Secretariat, please ensure that your membership profile, including Group Membership and contact details, is up to date in the MyRSPO member portal. You may view your past ACOP reports on the ACOP webpage.

We look forward to your cooperation and hope you have a successful ACOP reporting year. Should you have any enquiries, please contact [email protected].

Thank you,
