The Malaysian palm oil industry has said, and continues to demonstrate, that it stands strongly for planet and people.
The Malaysian Palm Oil Council has come out against the EU’s proposed unilateral Action Plan against deforestation, charging that is impractical to implement unilateral global initiatives to improve trade in sustainable goods.
This “golden crop” contributes significantly to Malaysia’s economy. It has been credited with reducing poverty and contributing to Malaysia’s environment.
“The benefits of the MSPO are of great interest to many of our partners in Europe. It will require a concerted international effort to achieve recognition, but the palm oil industry will gain from this.,” said Keong.
For MPOC, these World Palm Portraits capture more than what can be put into words. Each picture represents a different aspect of palm oil production, and together they form a mural of biodiversity and sustainability.
