Learning to Live Together: From Vision To Transformation
We are delighted to extend our warmest invitation to participate in the 14th Annual Roundtable Conference on Sustainable Palm Oil (RT14) in Bangkok from the 8th to 10th of November 2016.
At last year’s RSPO Roundtable, there was an urge for stakeholders "to work together rather than competing to be more sustainable than your neighbour". This is what inspired this year’s theme, "Learning to Live Together: From Vision to Transformation". In the spirit of the theme, this year’s RT14 will act as a platform to hear your views on how issues affecting the palm oil sector, both in terms environmental and social impacts, can be addressed.
Inclusive partnerships are more crucial than ever at this stage as we embrace the concept of market transformation in committing to not leaving anyone behind. Stakeholders must increase their participation to improve effectiveness. Now comes the hard question. How do we ensure these certification schemes are benefiting sustainability? Only by embracing this question through strong collaboration and collective action, we will be able to achieve this vision.
It is in this spirit that we welcome you to Bangkok and hope it will be an awe-inspiring experience.
Enjoy the journey!
