POIG releases benchmarks for responsible palm oil production

The Palm Oil Innovation Group (POIG) today released a set of indicators that allow for the independent verification of performance against the POIG Charter, which was  released in November 2013. The POIG Charter builds on the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil’s (RSPO) certification standard with additional requirements that ensure all palm oil operations by POIG grower members are free from deforestation, the destruction of peatlands,
and human and labor rights abuses.
