The European Palm Oil Alliance (EPOA) was a sponsor of RSPO’s fifth annual European Roundtable at the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) in central London 12 and 13 June 2017.

Information stand
EPOA had an information stand at the exhibition room that attracted a lot of attention. The attendees were interested in the EPOA communication material, that was available in several languages. Attendees also were interested to learn about the Alliance and its members and goals.

Virtual reality
Through a virtual reality tour, the participants could experience a visit of a palm oil plantation and see the sustainable production and harvesting of the oil palm fruits in the tropics.

The conference
Bringing together delegates from around the world, this year’s event called for partnerships and innovation to help deliver the EU 2020 target for 100% sustainable palm oil and to continue a transformation of the palm oil market; helping to reduce deforestation and greenhouse gas emissions from palm oil production, while supporting livelihoods and economic development.
