The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the global consensus on sustainability. Malaysian palm oil contributes significantly to the SDGs. It reduces poverty and improves livelihoods, supports the Malaysian economy, and reduces land use for vegetable oil crops across the globe.
Malaysian palm oil is certified under a mandatory national standard – MSPO – that is the largest vegetable oil certification system in the world. MSPO certifies that farmers are producing palm oil sustainably, ensuring against deforestation and protecting labour rights.
Malaysia is leading the palm oil industry to improve labour practices and treatment of workers in line with international norms on worker rights and eradicating child labour and forced labour.
Malaysia works with international and local conservation groups across the country and supports programs to ensure its populations of orangutans, tigers and other wildlife will be there for future generations.
