GVL Welcomes RSPO Final Decision

MONROVIA, September 30 (LINA)  Oil palm giant Golden Veroleum Liberia says it welcomes the recent final decision issued by the Complaints Panel of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO).

The final decision, dated September 19, identified complaints made to the organization, which had been investigated by the RSPO Complaints panel.

Included in the report are clarifications on the GVL Concession Agreement, employment, Free Prior and Informed Consent, employment of former combatants, crop compensations, among others.

“We thank RSPO for many months of looking into all the details surrounding these complaints and coming up with what they have noted to be evidence-based decisions,” said Stephen Binda, GVL spokesperson.

In each case RSPO conducted a detailed assessment of GVL operations and its community engagements, along with consultations with local communities and NGO and CSO stakeholders, according to Binda.

In June 2014, RSPO members completed a field visit to Sinoe and Grand Kru Counties. During the initial visit the team met with community members and GVL staff and managers.

Also in attendance at the meetings were non-governmental organizations Sustainable Entrepreneurs for Sustainable Development (SesDEV), Save My Future Foundation (SAMFU) and Green Advocates.
