Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil

Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil Membership (RSPO), initiated by Cinnamon Williams, Animal Curator, gives the Zoo a voice in determining the standards for sustainable palm oil.

RSPO, a not-for-profit association, is the only multi-stakeholder organization with a global reach that is exclusively focused on making sustainable palm oil the norm. With over 2,000 members globally, they represent 40% of the palm oil industry covering all sectors of the global commodity supply chain.

“RSPO Next” is their latest initiative to raise the bar higher by asking companies to reach standards that will recognize their efforts at promoting best practices around NO deforestation, NO fire, NO planting on peat and respect for human rights and transparency.
