RSPO PalmTrace replaced RSPO eTrace as the RSPO IT system in January 2017, with the introduction of new features. For example, trade of RSPO-certified volumes across all four supply chain models (Identity Preserved, Segregated, Mass Balance, Book and Claim) is now possible in PalmTrace.
GreenPalm makes way for Credits
The launch of PalmTrace also coincided with RSPO discontinuing its endorsement of GreenPalm in December 2016. As of 31 March 2017, the market for GreenPalm Certificates will close. The Book and Claim supply chain model is now supported by the trade of RSPO Credits in RSPO PalmTrace, as shown below.
