KUALA LUMPUR CONVENTION CENTER, MALAYSIA

EU-MALAYSIA DISCOURSE ON PALM OIL SUSTAINABILITY

Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, 11 October 2017

Introduction and Aims of the Conference

Palm oil is in almost everything we buy – from food, to shampoo and beauty products and so it is crucial that we find a way to ensure that it is produced responsibly.  Palm oil is also a controversial issue that needs to be discussed in a balanced way. Hence is vital to raise awareness of the fact that there is good and bad palm oil, and that we all have a choice. Hence, the conference aims to address palm oil sustainability issues related to social, environmental and economic good practice such as:

  1. Understanding the difference of intercultural points of views and different ways of communication between EU and Malaysia.
  2. Aligning the communication strategy revolving around the issues of sustainable palm oil.
  3. Focusing on positive communication based on operational solutions for a better sustainability in the palm oil industry (technologies or services by companies, initiatives by NGOs and others).
