WHO WE ARE

The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) is a global, multi-stakeholder initiative on sustainable palm oil. Members of RSPO, and participants in its activities come from many different backgrounds, including plantation companies, processors and traders, consumer goods manufacturers and retailers of palm oil products, financial institutions, environmental NGOs and social NGOs, from many countries that produce or use palm oil. The RSPO vision is to “transform the markets by making sustainable palm oil the norm".

BOARD OF GOVERNORS

The RSPO is managed by a Board of Governors comprised of 16 members (with alternate members), designated by the General Assembly for a period of 2 years. The RSPO Board of Governors is supported by 4 Standing Committees that oversee Standards & Certification, Trade & Traceability, Communications & Claims and Finance.

SECRETARIAT

Based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the RSPO Secretariat is in charge of the day-to-day running of the RSPO. Among others, the functions of the Secretariat include organizing the RSPO Board of Governors Meetings, coordinating the Roundtable meetings and General Assemblies, and servicing RSPO members.
