RSPO Credits / Book & Claim

Manufacturers and retailers can buy RSPO Credits and RSPO Independent Smallholder Credits from RSPO Certified growers, crushers and independent smallholders. By purchasing RSPO Credits, buyers encourage the production of Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO). An RSPO Credit represents one tonne of palm oil product in the sense that for every credit bought, a premium goes to the producer that has put its efforts into making sure one tonne of palm oil is produced according to the RSPO P&C. To continue providing economic incentives to growers, we need the flexibility of the Mass Balance supply chain to provide growers increased access to international markets.
