Update on Status of RSPO Suspension: Awaiting RSPO Acceptance of Action Plan

We would like to give you an update on the status of our RSPO suspension, which came into effect on April 4.

Following meetings with Aidenvironment, IOI Group submitted a revised action plan to RSPO on April 6, 2016. We have been informed that the RSPO Complaints Panel will meet before the end of next week to review and discuss the action plan. Acceptance of the action plan is one of the stated pre-conditions for the lifting of suspension.

In the meantime, we are working to implement the guidance received from the RSPO and to find solutions for our customers to mitigate impacts caused by the suspension as much as possible.

We remain committed to building a traceable, transparent and sustainable palm oil supply chain and look forward to resuming the supply of certified products as soon as possible.

Yours sincerely,

IOI Loders Croklaan
