Certified sustainable palm oil

How does GreenPalm work for manufacturers and retailers?


  • It's not a requirement to be an RSPO member, although we encourage you to join. How to: RSPO membership

  • Purchase certificates up to the volume of physical oil you wish to claim against via the GreenPalm Market. Any type of palm or palm kernel based ingredient can be covered. Certificates are valid per trading year, Jan-Dec and offset physical palm usage in your product/s production during that period. 

  • Each certificate represents one tonne of physical palm oil, palm kernel oil or any derivative or fraction used in your annual product production. 

  • On and Off market deal options available  Off market allows you to choose which RSPO certified grower you want to buy from.

  • Once paid for you then 'Redeem' the certificates. This confirms your commitment and certificates can no longer be re-sold on the market. 

  • You can claim to be supporting RSPO certified palm oil. On product claims, using the GreenPalm logo with no trademark licence required. If the logo is used on pack then 100% of the palm / palm kernel must be covered with certificates. 

  • Certificate claims can't be passed down the supply chain except in a retailer-private label relationship or a brand-co/pack supplier relationship. 

  • Retailers can buy certificates themselves or request private label suppliers do so on their behalf. 

  • Members who redeem more than 500 certificates and all retailers making claims will automatically be audited by an approved RSPO supply chain certifying body. Full GreenPalm Auditdetails.
