Towards improved sustainability
of palm oil – Can organic certification boost positive environmental
and social impact of palm oil?
(Frick, 28 February 2019) This question was at the centre of a special event held on 14 February at the Biofach organic trade fair congress in Nuremberg, Germany, attracting more than 120 participants. For the first time, the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (FiBL) presented the results from the ‘palm oil assessment project’ financed by Coop and the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO). Both entities are committed to promoting more sustainable palm oil production systems.
