Is Sustainable Palm Oil Really Sustainable?

In one of our previous articles we talked about the unsustainable expansion of the palm oil industry and the devastation it’s causing to our environment. Back in 2004, in an effort to curb this unsustainable growth, various stakeholders in the palm oil industry from the growers, producers, retailers to the manufactures, traders and NGOs formed a voluntary not-for-profit association called the “Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil” (RSPO). The RSPO’s stated objective is to promote the growth and use of sustainable palm oil products through global standards and stakeholder engagement.
