EU tells RI to review ISPO certification

The Jakarta Post, 6 December 2018

The European Union (EU) strongly encourages the Indonesian government to review the Indonesian Sustainable Palm Oil (ISPO) certification standard and make it more responsible and transparent by involving civil society organizations (CSO), EU Ambassador to Indonesia and Brunei Darussalam Vincent Guerend said in a press briefing on Tuesday (4 December) in Jakarta. The ISPO has often been criticized for the lack of involvement of CSOs in its preparation. He said that instead of the ISPO, the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) was more globally recognized.
