Sustainable & climate-friendly palm oil production and procurement

As of: November 2019

Objective and activities

Through sustainability platforms and partnership agreements in selected pilot regions stakeholder will be supported in close collaboration with partners in the value chain to disseminate sustainable and climate friendly cultivation practices among smallholders, to increase yields and accomplish certification. In both countries smallholders, oil mills and governments benefit from development of training programs. In Indonesia, stakeholders in a pilot region elaborate a land use plan with protected areas and suitable areas for oil palm cultivation – e.g. degraded land. To increase the demand for these products in Germany, the project will develop public procurement guidelines for municipalities, Federal States and the Federal government, targeting at purchasing products with certified palm oil. The implementing partner „Deutsche Umwelthilfe e.V.“ will address consumer platforms, to increase awareness for sustainably produced palm oil.
