Chester Zoo have co-developed this one day introductory course with EFECA to support organisations in navigating the complexity of palm oil supply chains. This course is specifically designed for commercial organisations involved in procurement of palm oil within their supply chains.
Over the course of the day, our Sustainable Palm Oil Specialists will take you through key topics related to:
- Responsible supply chains
- UK Due Diligence
- The link to carbon and climate change
- Legislation and paperwork
- Community engagement schemes in the UK
- Evidence and certification checks
- Field conservation and palm oil
There’ll be opportunities to discuss your current palm oil status, how to become RSPO certified and how to navigate the range of certification schemes you may encounter as a business. Experts will be on hand the whole day to network with, discuss your current challenges and offer some advice on next steps for your businesses.
We will also show you success stories from the field and how your work on Sustainable Palm Oil has real world impact on the communities, flora and fauna that we work in Malaysia.
EXTRA DAY: After completing the introductory course, you’ll be invited to join us on the 18 February for an early morning tour (9am) to visit The Islands at Chester Zoo. Discover the six South East Asian islands and the amazing wildlife that can be found there! After the tour, feel free to stay in the zoo for the rest of the day.
