RSPO: 14 years of failure to eliminate violence and destruction from the industrial palm oil sector


November 12, 2018. Open Statement

During its 14 years of existence, RSPO – the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil – has failed to live up to its claim of „transforming” the industrial palm oil production sector into a so-called „sustainable” one.

The RSPO challenged in Honduras and Germany

The RSPO challenged in Honduras and Germany


WRM Bulletin 193, September 11, 2013

Millions of hectares of industrial oil palm plantations have been expanding in many countries of Asia, Africa and Latin America with a well documented history of tropical deforestation – including enormous fires – and a sad toll of human rights violations.

However, the powerful interests behind this business continue actively promoting this crop, against a background of growing opposition at the local level.

Within this context the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) was created. ... read more

Open Letter to RSPO and WWF

One year ago, the “International Declaration Against the ‘Greenwashing’ of Palm Oil by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil” was published, signed by over 250 organisations worldwide (http://www.regenwald.org/international/englisch/news.php?id=1070). Since then, the RSPO has continued to certify palm oil produced by companies which are directly responsible for violating the rights of local communities, for the ongoing destruction of rainforests and peatlands and other abuses against people, the environment ... read more
