WHY COME TO THE CONFERENCE

Palm oil is a hot topic for consumers, media and increasingly for governments. More and more people are demanding that the palm oil in their products be produced sustainably and scrutinise companies involved in the use of palm oil. This presents a challenge for supply chain managers, CSR managers, marketers and business strategists. In this environment, you want to assure consumers that your brand or product is doing the right thing and keeping pace with their demands, but you also need to be sure that the sustainability standards you are buying in to really work.

Issues

Hear the most up to date information on the state of the European market for sustainable palm oil and how the RSPO standard supports implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Change Agreement.

Insights

Discover the new synergies that are being created between the RSPO and new tools and initiatives being developed in the field and by businesses.

Understanding

Discuss the latest developments in RSPO's standards and the supply chain: RSPO NEXT, traceability, accountability, human and labour rights in palm oil production and supporting smallholders.

Engagement

Hear about what is being done and what more needs to be done to reach 100% CSPO in Europe by 2020.

Interaction

Interact with experts that are leading the field in sustainable palm oil. Discover the realities on the ground and the plans for the future.

Change

Learn about how the action that is taken in Europe can influence the CSPO market. Make a commitment to be part of this positive change.

INCLUSIVITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY

 

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in the 15th Annual Roundtable Conference on Sustainable Palm Oil (RT15), in Bali, from the 27th to 30th of November 2017.

This is an important year for the RSPO. As we review our Principles and Criteria (P&C), we must do so with different perspectives and possibilities. In previous years we’ve been heavily focused on Asia, but we must now make a more concerted effort to hear the voices of those in Africa, Latin America, and other emerging markets. It is never a simple task to get things done in complex situations, with diverse others. Voices must be heard, ambitions must be balanced; actions must be taken.

It is with this enthusiasm, that we must also ensure that the people who represent the voices of those in emerging markets are held accountable; so that the real collective voice is heard. We must embrace and trust this process, as it enables us to progress with less fear and distraction, and more connection and awareness.

We still have plenty of work to do, but through inclusivity and accountability, we have a better chance of doing it successfully.

With this theme in mind, we very much look forward to welcoming you to Bali.
