Some parties signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with RSI, such as the Planters Association and the Indonesian Planters Society (IPS). The MoU would focus on escalating palm oil’s human resources, both at the smallholder and the company’s level, which RSI would coordinate.

Chairman of IPS, Jamalul, said that the MoU would sustainably deliver education about palm oil cultivation in good agricultural practices (GAP).

Jamalul also said that a sustainable education program would be the main key to opening people’s eyes to what palm oil would deliver. The initiative would deliver not only basic knowledge but also export many applications and potentials to develop further products, including by conducting seminars, workshops, and trainings. It is hoped the people would dig more about crude palm oil contribution in many sectors.

It did white campaigns, which means to be the strong visual thing to inform the public about palm oil. The visit to palm oil plantations, informing materials, and having online campaigns would be parts of the white campaign. The main goal is to change the perception of the people by holistically delivering understanding about the economic, social, and environmental advantages of palm oil industries.

The last is that it actively involves non-government organizations and plantation practitioners directly. These would be significant to get many perspectives and experiences from society. The collaboration would reinforce legitimate information and support transparency and social responsibility in the palm oil industry.

The collaboration among many sectors would also deliver better insight about palm oil. “We want to understand palm oil as a whole, not in parts,” he said.

RSI planned to explore every potential and chance to develop palm oil on a national scale. By the approaches, it is hoped to get a holistic solution to escalate palm oil sectors in Indonesia. (T2)
