Monday 20 May 2019, more than 50 participants from NGO’s, industry (food, oleo), retail and science, gathered in Warsaw to establish the Polish Coalition for Sustainable Palm Oil. The meeting was a follow up of the February 2019 workshop, and aimed to further discuss the implications of implementing the ambition: 100% certified sustainable palm oil (RSPO equivalent) in 2020.
Inspired by presentations and a positive and constructive dialogue by WWF Poland, FONAP, Ferrero, BASF, Croda and EPOA the importance of promoting and implementing sustainable palm oil was discussed.
There are now four members (Nestle, Unilever, Ferrero, Croda) of the Polish Coalition. The coalition invites all stakeholders, food, feed, oleo, CSO’s, government organisations, and science to join.
The public launch is planned on June 17, 2019.
