Last year, at RT12, we strived to go "beyond expectations" as we listened to some brilliant speakers on how we as humans are the only ones that can think and change our journey into the future to be on a sustainable path.
But where do we stand, now that 2015 is finally here? Moving from our global vision, 2015 to achieving our regional action in 2020, we faced many challenges.
Many governments, organisations and industries around the world took seriously and demand that we too stand up and do our part. If we ignore them, we will no longer be a credible solution.
RSPO is now moving together on that path, being aware of the responsibility we all share, mobilising a convergence of individuals, communities and organisations - and to taking up positive actions that address the main drivers, and impacts, of unsustainable development.
For our Roundtable Conference this year, we will be joined by many speakers from all over the world as they collectively bring you up-to-date knowledge and experience coupled with lots of thought-provoking opinions and ideas to be shared.
This year at RT13, we will be back in Kuala Lumpur. Let’s take this opportunity for all of us to break brick walls of reasons, as the brick walls are not there to keep us out but to give us a chance to show how badly we want something.
I look forward to seeing you in Kuala Lumpur this November for RT13.

Regretfully, due to the recent events in Bangkok and in order to overcome the logistics difficulties experienced by inbound participants so far, the RT13 and RSPO GA12 events will be moved to Shangri-la Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The dates of the event remain unchanged.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused, and would like to express our sympathy to the Thai people in these difficult times, in the hope we will be able to reschedule an RT in Bangkok in the near future. Please visit www.rt13.rspo.org for more details and feel free to contact the RSPO Secretariat at [email protected] for any queries and assistance.
The Organiser reserves the right to amend the programme & details of RT13 as deemed necessary.
