Speaking on the second day of the sixth International Conference on Oil Palm and Environment (ICOPE) in Nusa Dua, World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Indonesia Policy, Sustainability and Transformation Director Aditya Bayunanda said that Indonesia, as a major player in the industry, should conduct more research into palm oil to achieve sustainability. Among things that have had a negative impact on the environment is the uncontrolled growth of oil palm plantations. Therefore, Indonesia needs to focus on intensification, he said, adding that technological advancement and innovation would be necessary if stakeholders aimed to speed up the process.
