ISPO/RSPO APPROACHES TOWARDS CERTIFICATION

As sustainability is the key to the success of a plantation venture, AGROTROP is committed to support oil palm producing companies towards being certifiable under the RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) and/or ISPO (The Indonesian Sustainable Palm Oil Foundation) scheme. Oil palm producers that wish to be responsible and environmentally sustainable players must adopt good agricultural and sustainable plantation practices that emphasizes higher standards of environmental, social and economic approaches.

We are eager to be in partnership with oil palm producers who want to excel in their business in a responsible manner with the ultimate goal of being certified. Our approach currently is to support in areas related to environment and social compliance of the RSPO and ISPO schemes. The methods used is the collection of objective evidence, including document review, site visits, observation of tasks and processes, interviews and stakeholder discussions with senior management, managers, staff, workers and villagers and adjacent land owners.
