Speed up Sustainable Palm Oil Practice in ISPO Version

PalmOilMagazine, JAKARTA - Sustainable palm oil plantation implementation is the continuous and strong issue since it was regulated in 2011. The regulation hits turbulence as it goes because there have been obstacles in the field. These happen for many overlapping policies (regulations).

On 13 March 2020 President’s Regulation Indonesian Republic No. 44 / 2020 was signed by President Joko Widodo (Jokowi).

It is hoped that the regulation could be the answer for many issues in implementing sustainable palm oil. By the increasing level of regulation, this could be the solution to implement ISPO.

Coordinator Minister in Economy Indonesian Republic, Airlangga Hartarto said that the regulation is about to make sure and increase the cultivation, management, and development of palm oil plantations based on ISPO principles and criteria.

The regulation is also about to increase the acceptance and competition of palm oil in the national and international level, strengthen the acceleration to reduce green-house gas emission. The new ISPO keeps being improved by having 7 (seven) principles, such as, the first is the license system and management of plantation.

The second is palm oil cultivation and process technical guideline; the third is environment process and supervision; the fourth is responsibility on the workers; the fifth is responsibility on social and people; the sixth is people’s economic empowerment; and the seventh is sustainable business enhancement.

“The government also obliged that every stakeholder within the 5 year – transition for the smallholders – should fulfill the conditions to get certificate,” Airlangga said when opening Indonesia Palm Oil Conference (IPOC) 2020, New Normal, that PalmOilMagazine joined in the early of December 2020.
