Making sustainable palm oil the norm

Why sustainable palm oil is better than a boycott

When grown sustainably, palm oil is a force for good. It helps protect the environment, communities, employees and wildlife. But when it’s grown unsustainably, palm oil production can be destructive and damaging. How are we enabling the positive impact of sustainable palm oil?

How RSPO helps

At the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), we have a simple aim: a sustainable palm oil industry.

We’re transforming the sector by bringing together stakeholders across the supply chain to develop and implement global standards for producing and sourcing certified sustainable palm oil.

Our global impact

Palm oil has a positive impact on the planet and people when grown sustainably.

By setting the environmental and social standards for certified sustainable palm oil, RSPO Members are making sure this impact is as far-reaching as possible.
