Two Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) were signed by WWF-Malaysia and the Malaysian Palm Oil Association (MPOA) on 21 February 2006.  This is to develop Better Management Practices for the Malaysian palm oil industry so as to safeguard Malaysia’s High Conservation Value Forests (HCVFs).

The Principals and criteria of Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) were adopted at Round Table 3 (RT3) held on 22-23 November 2005 in Singapore.
