RSPO Standards

Aims, objectives and requirements for the production and procurement of RSPO Certified Sustainable Palm Oil.

The RSPO is a voluntary, global membership organisation that unites stakeholders from the seven sectors of the palm oil industry to develop and implement global standards for the production and procurement of sustainable palm oil.

Our standards embody the objectives and goals of the RSPO. They capture relevant, impactful and implementable requirements which are collectively discussed and agreed upon by the seven categories of our multi-stakeholder membership base. RSPO standards provide the aims, objectives and mandatory requirements for the production and procurement of RSPO Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO).
