The key to understanding the GreenPalm programme is to know that palm oil supplies from different plantations, mills and even countries are intermingled at each stage of the production and delivery process. Under normal circumstances it is therefore impossible for palm oil purchasers to know exactly where their oil has come from and how it has been produced. It is possible of course to process and ship palm oil separately – it’s just that physical segregation adds cost at every stage. The GreenPalm programme works by bypassing the physical supply chain completely. Here’s how… RSPO certified palm oil producers are invited to register a quantity of their output with the GreenPalm programme. They are awarded one GreenPalm certificate for each tonne of palm oil which has been sustainably produced. They can then put those certificates up for sale here on the GreenPalm web based trading platform.
