17 Years of Palm Oil Trade in Netherland: Promoste Sustainable Principles

InfoSAWIT, JAKARTA – Sustainable palm oil in Netherland started much longer and becomes the significant history in the country. In around 2006 the basic things were formulated to produce technical components needed for the initiative.

Chairman of Dutch Alliance for Sustainable Palm Oil (DASPO), Eddy Esselink said during the period the food and woof association massively got the changes. Many organizations united to fight the assumption saying that it was impossible to harmonize the comprehensive things. “The collaboration was the new era for sustainable palm oil in Netherland,” Eddy said, as InfoSAWIT quoted from the official page of Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), Saturday (25/5/2024).

The turning point happened when the organizations decided to play their roles to re-raise sustainable palm oil. “It was a brave decision because at the period, there was no institution how to realize it,” he said.

Eddy continued in 2015, many early challenges were solved. Even though the future of sustainable palm oil is uncertain, it is a pride to know and realize the progressive sustainable palm oil. This is a long journey and we hit it. The commitments of the companies and the return of approach that is oriented to the goals, made the key to encourage the changes.

Now RSPO has about 6.000 members. This reflected the success and right way of promising careers for those involved. The progress also emphasized the impacts of organizations and dedicated people. In the future, there would be the same vision to maintain and escalate every effort to make sure the long term – success.

In short, the approach by Netherland to revitalize palm oil trade through sustainable practices would be the story about collaboration, bravery, and progress significantly. “These showed how the persistent collective efforts would make meaningful changes to face the uncertainty,” Eddy said. (T2)
