Through ASPOL project, funded by HSBC, Yayasan WWF Indonesia aims to gain commitment from downstream companies,  including consumer goods manufacturers,  retailers,  hotels,  and restaurants,  to source sustainable palm oil for domestic consumers.

  5. Coordinate with other institutions/NGOs that may have similar agendas on sustainable retail to strengthen the collaboration among stakeholders, avoid duplication, and align efforts where possible.
  1. Series of meetings and workshops with targeted audiences are held (see Section III Scope of Work for details), with agendas, slides, and workshop summary reports shared with WWF-Indonesia.
  2. Five downstream companies are committed to joining Green Lifestyle Platform as the starting point towards sustainable palm oil sourcing.
  3. Five downstream companies put written commitment to start/increase sourcing of sustainable palm oil of at least 25% of their current total volume.

  • Advanced understanding and a well-established network with Indonesian palm oil and downstream industry stakeholders which include retailers, consumer goods producers, hotels, restaurants, government bodies, and industry associations.
  • Advanced understanding of sustainability issues and be specific on sustainable palm oil.
  • Familiarity with the existing and emerging collaborative sustainability networks, forums, and alliances related to sustainable production and consumption, and ability to identify and pursue strategic alignment with these networks, forums, and alliances.
