WWF's vision and strategy for sustainable palm oil

Vision

WWF is working for oil palm plantations that: 
  • do not threaten high conservation value areas
  • are managed according to sound environmental practices
  • deliver positive social impacts
  • are developed under appropriate regulatory frameworks
  • operate transparently
  • reduce their greenhouse gas emissions

Aims

  • Socially acceptable and environment-friendly production and sourcing of palm oil
  • Increased demand for, and use of, goods produced under such practices.

Strategy

Our areas of work to achieve this include:
Better production
  • Developing better production practices that reduce the environmental and social impact of palm oil
  • Identifying areas that should be zoned out of production due to their high conservation value, while encouraging production on available degraded lands
     
Improving policy
  • Calling for transparent land-use planning processes to achieve an optimal distribution of natural forests, plantations, agricultural areas, urban areas and other land-use
     
Transforming markets Responsible consumption Responsible financing
