As the second largest palm oil importing country in the world with about 6 million tonnes of imports annually since 2009, China is no doubt a key player in promoting sustainable palm oil. Solidaridad works to contribute to sustainable procurement of palm oil with respect for nature and people.

The programme has led study tours for Chinese companies to travel to Europe and Southeast Asia to learn best practices for sustainable production and procurement. At the end of 2015, Solidaridad facilitated the launch of the China Sustainable Palm Oil Working Group, as a permanent mechanism for stakeholder dialogues with expectations on zero-deforestation consensus building in the short term.
