RSPO - Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil
Supporting RSPO certified sustainable palm oil

How does GreenPalm work?

Only RSPO certified growers can register and sell certificates via the GreenPalm market.  



The GreenPalm market

On the GreenPalm market RSPO certified palm oil producers place offers for their certified tonnage, and product manufacturers across the globe place bids.

Quick five-step guide to how GreenPalm works: The GreenPalm market

  1. An RSPO certified producer receives one GreenPalm certificate for each tonne of certified palm oil produced. The producer also has the option of selling their tonnage via physical supply chains eg Segregated. 

  2. The certificates are offered for sale on the GreenPalm market.

  3. Manufacturer bids for and buys certificates representing an equivalent volume to the amount it uses in its products. 

  4. The RSPO certified producer receives the certificate price as a premium – additional income for working responsibly.  

  5. The manufacturer can show it has supported the production of RSPO certified palm oil or palm kernel oil. 


Off market deal (OMD) option


An alternative to placing anonymous bids and offers on the market is to use our off market deal option. This allows manufacturers or retailers to partner with a selected RSPO certified producer, agreeing to buy their certificates at a set price / quantity.

This allows the manufacturer additional traceability, knowing exactly where the RSPO sustainable premium is going. Additional claims can also be made, making the off market deal facility the perfect option for manufacturers looking to support independent palm oil smallholders.
