Sustainable Palm Oil Campaign

Location: Malaysia

Orangutan Land Trust is a member of the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil, and very active in efforts to ensure that the palm oil industry works as sustainably as possible. We have helped to develop the new Guidelines for New Plantings Procedure for the RSPO which will help companies wishing to become certified sustainable to achieve this goal.

We have also negotiated partnerships between major palm oil producers and NGOs to help train staff in Best Management Practice to minimise the risk of human-wildlife conflict in areas of oil palm.
