Wild Asia Group Scheme (WAGS) is an initiative that provides a working model for independent palm oil producers to help improve their production, social and environmental practices.
Through our experience with RSPO Group Certification, we now have a better understanding of not only the challenges of small producers but also how to effectively work with the different stakeholders in the palm oil supply chain; dealers, traders, mills, refiners and buyers.
We are also working with local palm oil mills to implement systems and approaches to progressively increase the volume of traceable palm oil and to meet the “No Deforestation, No New Development on Peat and No Exploitation” requirements of sustainable palm oil production.
Expected Outcome: Sustainable agriculture enabled through a network of self-supported extensions providers working in a continual improvement system. Recognises that Certification is not a goal, but part of a process, to work through challenges, unlock opportunities to promote change at a local level - for social and environmental benefits - for all.
Key Performance Indicators (KPIs): Progressive increase of WAGS-supported producers (area and production), connected through local (supply chain partners) and receiving palm oil refineries.
