The SPOC initiative is set up to strengthen and solidify the European investments in a sustainable palm oil value chain by promoting uptake of RSPO-certified material and instigating and catalysing further bold action towards eliminating deforestation and exploitation from palm oil supply chains while remaining smallholder inclusive.
SPOCs participants unite European refining industries with bold constructive NGO voices. Together we want to invest in increasing and strengthening the positive impacts of palm production and reduce and eliminate the negative aspects associated with palm oil production and build sustainable palm oil value chains.
One of our ambitions is to strive for 100% uptake of sustainable palm oil in Europe by COP Nov 2021. It is important to note that to reach this target we depend a great deal on FMCG and Retail buying of sustainably produced palm oil.
