The current estimated annual production capacity of RSPO-certified production units, 4.2 million tonnes of sustainable palm oil, equals about 9 percent of global production, estimated to be about 46 million tonnes annually.
An estimated 11,500 tonnes of sustainable palm oil currently leave RSPO-certified oil mills every day. About 54 percent of the world's current RSPO-certified palm oil production capacity is in Malaysia. Indonesia is second, with about 35 percent of the current global supply.
Papua New Guinea and Colombia provide the remaining 10 percent and 1 percent, respectively. Within Malaysia, the Peninsula holds a little more certified capacity than Borneo; Within Indonesia, Sumatra has five times more certified capacity than Kalimantan.
Other than palm oil, certified mills also collect palm kernels for further processing. At present, certified production units harvest close to 1 million tonnes of palm kernels annually, out of which about 450,000 tonnes of RSPO-certified sustainable palm kernel oil and derivatives will be processed.
