EURT2018 | INCLUSIVITY: FROM PRODUCTION TO CONSUMPTION

Europe remains the leading market for sustainable palm oil yet it continues to be a  topic of debate among consumers and policy makers. People are looking for greater levels of transparency, commitment and sustainability. RSPO is working towards making sustainable palm oil the norm through a process of market transformation and has a goal to reach 100% CSPO in Europe by 2020. This target is echoed in national industry initiatives and signatories to the Amsterdam Declarations governments.  

The sixth annual European Roundtable brings into focus  the need to adopt an inclusive approach at each stage of market transformation. This is fundamental to support the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)  and the advancement of a more inclusive, sustainable future.

The conference will explore these pressing issues facing the industry;  

  • How sustainable palm oil can help create opportunities for green and inclusive growth in producing countries, within the context of the SDGs.
  • What’s working, what needs to change and how to scale up for success in European and emerging markets to meet 2020 commitments.
  • The risks and responsibilities to protect labour and human rights along the supply chain, with a focus downstream.
  • The jurisdictional approach as a catalyst for collective action.
  • In a pivotal year for the RSPO, as it reviews the Principles & Criteria; #EURT2018 will also provide delegates with updates on the latest draft and public consultation.

#EURT2018 will bring together a diverse audience from Europe and across the world for a dynamic event that shapes the agenda on how to make sustainable palm oil the norm.
