Understanding Sustainable Palm Oil
On behalf of BM TRADA we're organising a seminar about understanding sustainable palm oil, avoiding the pitfalls and managing risk for your organisation or clients.
Wellington: Thursday 16 October 2014
This seminar will improve participants’ understanding of sustainable palm oil, avoiding pitfalls and managing risks for their organisations.
Recent opposition to palm oil production on the grounds of deforestation and adverse impacts on endangered species has highlighted the need for a greater understanding of the steps being taken to produce palm oil in an environmentally sustainable manner.
Managing public outrage is something all users of palm oil and related products should be prepared for. Presenters at the seminar will lead discussions that explore this important area of concern and outline how Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certification can help, as well as outlining how this scheme compares with other certification programmes.
