Following the success of a consumer-led haze campaign and the first Singapore Sustainable Palm Oil Dialogue in March 2016, WWF-Singapore and a group of founding members have come together to form the South-East Asia Alliance for Sustainable Palm Oil .
Vision of the Alliance
Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO) is produced in a way that has minimum impact on the environment and does not destroy natural forest habitat. CSPO is not responsible for haze pollution because slash and burn clearance methods, which lead to uncontrollable forest fires, are not used in its production.
The vision of the Alliance is to make CSPO the norm to stop the haze as well as deforestation and habitat loss in the region. It aims to provide a platform for companies to come on a sustainable journey towards producing, trading and using certified sustainable Palm Oil .
