THE Sustainable Palm Oil Manifesto was inked in January 2014, with some of the largest companies in the global palm oil supply chain committing to setting higher standards of sustainability.

Among the key commitments in the manifesto is to fund a scientific study to define and set a threshold for High Carbon Stock (HCS) forests, to prevent palm oil companies from clearing land in these forests.
