Resolution 6D, titled “Discouraging RSPO Members Subject to Complaints from Avoiding Their Obligations by Divestment or Withdrawing Their Membership” (hereinafter referred to as “Resolution 6D”) was passed at the 15th Annual General Assembly on 15 November 2018. This resolution was the result of growing concern among RSPO members on the increasing number of divestments and withdrawal from RSPO memberships during the course of an active complaint.

To achieve the intended goal of the resolution, the Resolution 6D Task Force (the “Task Force”) was formed in June 2019, comprising representatives from each RSPO Membership Sector. To learn more on Resolution 6D and the work to date, please visit

After legal review and a series of discussions, the Task Force is putting forth their recommendations for public consultation for 30 days from 1 June to 30 June 2020. Please take this opportunity to provide feedback on the Task Force’s recommendations, and comments from all stakeholders are welcome to further improve and strengthen these recommendations.
