Working Groups

The RSPO Working Groups are designed to encourage members to address complex and difficult challenges and work towards developing solutions. As a multi stakeholder, participatory roundtable that works on the basis of consensus, it is essential that all members feed in to the decision-making process. The committees and subgroups are made up of a representative from each of the stakeholder groups and are periodically created to deal with a specific issue.
