7 - 10 NOVEMBER 2016


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.


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.


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


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.


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


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


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.

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!
