During the recent Principles and Criteria (P&C) review process and in line with the RSPO Theory of Change (ToC), the mechanism of accountability was discussed and explored, with wide agreement on the concept of shared responsibility. RSPO is now calling for participation and nomination of members for the Shared Responsibility Task Force (SRTF).

It was agreed that a transparent process be established, which considers the overall process from determining a limited set of relevant and meaningful reporting criteria, that are essential for the provision of information on crucial issues from non-producer RSPO members, including the procedures for collection, analysis and reporting, consequences, and communications strategies.

The call for participation and/or nomination closes at 5pm (MYT), 25th January 2019. The first SRTF meeting is tentatively scheduled for 12th February 2019 at Kuala Lumpur.
