Helikonia is the Secretariat for the Palm Oil Innovation Group (POIG).

POIG is an initiative by leading palm oil producers and international NGOs to develop the benchmark for truly responsible palm oil. Members include international and grassroots NGOs as well as leading palm oil producers and major global brands.

The initiative focuses on three thematic areas of environmental responsibility, partnerships with communities, and corporate and product integrity.

POIG focuses on creating innovations in the palm oil industry and the promotion of these innovations.

POIG will demonstrate that by setting and implementing ambitious standards, the industry can in particular break the link between palm oil and deforestation, and human, land and labour rights violations.
