Location: Brussels, Belgium
Event Type: Dialogue

APAG, FEDIOL, IDH and the RSPO are pleased to open registrations for the Sustainable Palm Oil Dialogue (SPOD) 2024 which will be held on Wednesday, 22 May in Brussels, Belgium with the theme ‘Inclusive Pathways for Climate-smart Solutions’.

Climate change is the challenge of our time. With the “agriculture, forestry and other land uses” sector accounting for 13-21% of global emissions, there is mounting pressure to address this issue through sustainable production and supply chains. In Europe, this has led to both regulatory and non-regulatory initiatives to reduce emissions, such as mandatory reporting Scope 1 and 2 emissions.

Against this backdrop, SPOD 2024 will look at how innovative voluntary and mandatory initiatives can support emissions’ reduction in the palm oil supply chain. As well as how these initiatives can respect the position of smaller actors in the palm oil supply chains (including smallholder farmers), to ensure they are not left behind in the journey towards more sustainable agricultural practices.

The programme will be updated on the SPOD 2024 website in due course.

Registration ends on 10 May 2024 and it is subject to availability. If capacity is reached before that date, a waiting list will be established. The organisers reserve the right to limit the number of participants to three per organisation. You will be contacted to review the participant list if this number is exceeded.
