The environmental impacts of palm oil production have received mass attention, however, social challenges in this sector are equally critical to achieving fully sustainable supply chains. What is the state of play of these social aspects in palm oil production? And how can European action contribute to raising the capacity of supply chains to meet such social challenges? This session provides an opportunity to explore these questions in-depth and presents examples of how participants can drive positive social change.

While studies show deforestation linked to palm oil is decreasing, palm oil continues to be one of the main drivers of tropical forest loss. How can we accelerate the decreasing trend and fully delink palm oil production from deforestation? This session provides the opportunity to deepen our understanding on the latest trends in deforestation linked to palm oil. It also facilitates the discussion on how companies, governments and NGO's can contribute to making the palm oil sector forest positive.
