We know there is still a lot of work to be done if we truly are to achieve market transformation. I'm confident that RSPO members throughout the supply chain will work together to increase the uptake of CSPO, deliver positive impacts, and tackle the other challenges and opportunities that may come our way in 2021 and beyond."
