The Palm Oil & NGO (PONGO) Alliance was founded in 2015 and officially launched in June 2017. The Alliance's mission is to support the management of orangutans and other wildlife within oil palm landscapes. 

It gathers industry and NGO members, mostly from Palm Oil producing and trading countries – Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore – who believe that the best way to achieve tangible results in wildlife conservation is through collaboration between all stakeholders on the ground.
