This study aims to discuss the position of palm oil as a source of renewable energy or biofuel which has been criticized in the form of spending on RED policies, both RED I and RED II by the European Union because they are considered to have pioneered environmental damage. Indonesia, Malaysia and Colombia through the CPOPC agency are trying to respond to this problem. The method used by the author is a descriptive method, with data collection techniques and case studies as the basis. Seeing how the decision makers, in this case the CPOPC member countries, set a stance on the decisions taken by the European Union towards Biofuel products from Palm Oil. The limitation of the problem in writing is discussing the impact of RED II, the goals, attitudes and cooperation of palm oil producing countries that are members of the CPOPC. Through the lobbying of CPOPC diplomacy in the European Union and sustainability schemes for oil palm plantations in member countries, there is still a need for community movements to support this so that a positive campaign against palm oil will win CPO from RED II, make global palm oil consumption rise and have an impact. to price movements as well as significant export volumes.
