GreenPalm exclusively operates the Book & Claim supply chain option for the RSPO - Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil
The GreenPalm option allows RSPO certified growers to convert their certified oil into certificates, one tonne of certified crude palm oil or palm kernel oil converts to one certificate. Offers for these certificates are then placed on the GreenPalm Market.
Product manufacturers who use palm, palm kernel oil or any palm based derivative and fraction in their products then place offers for these certificates, offsetting their physical oil with the equivalent amount of certificates. The claim can then be made that your company / product supports the production of RSPO certified sustainable palm oil. The full value of each certificate is sent back to the RSPO producer who can then reinvest this premium to help tackle the environmental and social issue created by the production of palm oil.
GreenPalm has reported a record trade of palm kernel oil (PKO) certificates during the month of October 2013. November saw a further record broken by the sustainable palm oil certificate-trading programme, with unprecedented figures for the number of palm oil certificates sold.
ZSL’s (Zoological Society London) launched its Sustainable Palm Oil Platform in November. The platform provides information for all stakeholders in the sustainable palm oil supply chain. Bringing together a diverse range of tools & resources; including two case studies submitted by GreenPalm on the importance of smallholders and China, India. Click the logo to visit the platform....
