The expansion of oil palm cultivation has, in part, occurred at the expense of forests, but also through replacement of other tropical crops such as hevea (rubber) and cocoa beans. To ensure sustainable production that does not worsen deforestation, the Alliance has chosen to embrace the certification criteria established by the RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil). Its work defending the environment since 2004 has already led to the certification of 1.7 million hectares of palm groves, all cultivated in a way that respects the natural environment.
