MALAYSIA: PALM OIL RSPO TO KEEP COLLABORATIONS WITH PARTNERS INCLUSIVE

KUALA LUMPUR– The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) will continue working with its partners particularly in developing and emerging regions to keep collaborations as inclusive as possible.

This was to ensure that every voice, especially those from affected communities, was heard and accounted for, said Chief Executive Officer, Darrel Webber.

He also said the non-profit organisation would ensure that best practices and standards were attainable and beneficial to all parties.

“As we review our Principles and Criteria (P&C), we must account for the different perspectives and possibilities, diverse markets and stakeholder groups, especially the less privileged ones,” he told a media briefing on RSPO via teleconferencing here today.

Webber, who launched the RSPO’s 15th Annual Roundtable Meeting earlier today, said the process must empower stakeholders to find local solutions to local issues that work within an international framework.
