  2. 2. Welcome to 7TH ROUNDTABLE MEETING ON SUSTAINABLE PALM OIL Moving Ahead in Challenging Times The RSPO, during its short but productive existence, has faced up to and provided solutions to criticisms from a global spectrum of stakeholders. Like many other organizations, RSPO has not been spared the ripples from the global financial meltdown, with main concerns about the relevance of more costly certified palm oil in already cash-strapped markets. 2009 has been a year of growth and consolidation - 34 operating units from 11 companies certified with a production capacity of ~1.75 million tonnes of sustainable palm oil. The Principles & Criteria and their assessment methodologies have been further refined. ConTenTs RSPO is addressing a host of topics from High Conservation Value Tentative Programme 3-6 areas and New Planting guidelines to Greenhouse Gas emissions, Call for papers 7 compensation schemes and habitat rehabilitation.
