Indonesia Is A Model For Sustainable Palm Oil Production – RSPO

May 19, 2011: 09:14 PM EST
An organization fostering standards for sustainable palm oil production has given a nod of approval to Indonesia’s accomplishments. The country, largest palm oil producer in the world, employs 3.7 million people in the sector, which accounts for seven percent of Indonesia’s  gross domestic product. Certified sustainable palm oil (CSPO) production in Indonesia quadrupled to 800,000 metric tons in 2010 over 2009, and has increased to 1.2 million metric tons  through April 2011, a 600 percent increase. The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) said  “Indonesia is in a strong position to be a benchmark for new emerging markets to adopt sustainable practices.”  RSPO said many Indonesian member companies have implemented “world class standards and practices” for achieving CSPO production.
