WHY COME TO THE CONFERENCE

Palm oil is a hot topic for consumers, media and increasingly for governments. More and more people are demanding that the palm oil in their products be produced sustainably and scrutinise companies involved in the use of palm oil. This presents a challenge for supply chain managers, CSR managers, marketers and business strategists. In this environment, you want to assure consumers that your brand or product is doing the right thing and keeping pace with their demands, but you also need to be sure that the sustainability standards you are buying in to really work.

Dear valued members and stakeholders,

In light of tightened movement restrictions in Malaysia and around the world, we have cancelled the multi-day format for this year's Annual Roundtable Conference on Sustainable Palm Oil (RT2020) originally scheduled from 9 -11 November 2020. This event has been reformatted in consultation with members to deliver the same high value content in a more accessible way, spread out over the course of the coming months. Given the increase in virtual events, we appreciate that many among us are experiencing 'zoom fatigue'.

We hear you and we remain committed to providing an impactful platform for industry leaders and key stakeholders across all sectors to come together to discuss the current market, challenges, and opportunities for sustainable palm oil. To this end RSPO will be hosting a series of webinars and other innovative dialogue sessions in the coming weeks/months to replace our 3-day event. Please watch this space for more information.

Best regards,
Beverley Postma, RSPO CEO-Designate

Welcome to the official website of The Virtual Annual Roundtable Conference on Sustainable Palm Oil 2020 ("RT2020") !

Update on Mount Agung (4:30pm, 27 November 2017)

RT2020 update - RT Day 1 cancelled, Day 2 & 3 and GA proceed

Due to major flight disruptions caused by volcanic activity of Mt Agung, Bali, RSPO regrets to inform delegates that Day 1 of RT2020 (Tuesday 28 November) has been cancelled. In trying to deliver the best possible experience for the guests that are already on site, the events scheduled for Day 2 and 3 of RT2020 (Wednesday 29 and Thursday 30 November), will proceed as usual, pending minor programme changes.

At this point, the RSPO General Assembly (GA17) is planned to proceed as usual. We suggest all delegates that are not currently in Bali and are eligible to vote but not yet registered, to do so by registering for online voting. Deadline to register and vote is 28th November, 3:00 pm (GMT+8).

For the delegates who have yet to travel to Bali, kindly do let us know your travel status by writing to rt@rspo.org, as soon as possible.

We recommend delegates to not seek alternative land or sea routes and only seek reliable information source such as Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport website (https://www.baliairport.com) which issues official statements for travellers and travel agents.
