KUALA LUMPUR, June 26 (Bernama) —  A total of 15 strategic initiatives have been implemented under the Malaysian Sustainable Palm Oil (MSPO) Certification Strategy Action Plan 2024-2026 to strengthen the MSPO brand, said Deputy Plantation and Commodity Minister Datuk Chan Foong Hin.

He said among the strategic initiatives have been the rebranding of MSPO from the Malaysian Palm Oil Certification Council (MPOCC); efforts to accept and recognise the MSPO certification scheme by the European Union (EU) within the framework of the European Union Deforestation-free Regulation (EUDR); and acceptance of the MSPO Biomass certification scheme in Japan.

The MSPO Certification Strategy Action Plan 2024 – 2026 was designed to strengthen and increase the acceptance of the MSPO certification scheme in the global market and is in the process of implementation.

Chan said this in response to a question from Jamaludin Yahya (PN-Pasir Salak) who wanted to know the status of the MSPO Certification Strategy Action Plan 2024-2026 in the Dewan Rakyat today.

As of May 31, 2024, 86 per cent, or 4.84 million hectares of the country's 5.62 million hectares of oil palm plantations have obtained the MSPO.
