The Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) is a group of palm oil firms, including producers, traders and retailers, that was formed to set global standards for environmentally sustainable palm oil.
The roundtable was launched in response to concerns that the production of palm oil for use in food and biofuel was leading to widespread deforestation in countries such as Indonesia and Brazil.
Standards were agreed in 2008 and as a result some plantations have begun to ship palm oil that has been certified as sustainable.
However, uptake of sustainable palm oil has been slow, as it can typically cost around 10 per cent more than non-certified alternatives.
