RSPO has a four-part mission:
- Advance the production, procurement, finance and use of sustainable palm oil products
- Develop, implement, verify, assure and periodically review credible global standards for the entire supply chain of sustainable palm oil
- Monitor and evaluate the economic, environmental and social impacts of the uptake of sustainable palm oil in the market
- Engage and commit all stakeholders throughout the supply chain, including governments and consumers
While RSPO has brought the sustainable palm oil market far forward, there are still elements that we hope to build upon, such as traceability to plantation level, protection of High Carbon Stock (HSC) forests and High Conservation Value (HCV) areas, protection of peatland regardless of its depth, and additional support to smallholder farmers.
