Palm Oil Plantation Growers
In order to acquire and then sell GreenPalm certificates you must first be verified by a Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) accredited auditor as a producer of sustainable palm oil.
In order to do that you must prove that your palm oil plantation is run in compliance with the RSPO’s 8 principles and 39 practical criteria which define sustainable production of palm oil.
These ensure that fundamental rights of previous land owners, local communities, plantation workers, small farmers and their families are respected and fully taken into account, that no new primary forests or high conservation value areas have been cleared for palm oil production since November 2005, and that mills and plantation owners minimize their environmental footprint. A full listing of principles, criteria and indicators is given in the RSPO document Principles and Criteria for Sustainable Palm Oil available at the Roundtable’s website (www.rspo.org) under ‘Key documents’.
