I am a Buyer


If your company is interested in contributing to sustainable and responsible palm oil production, you can start with purchasing RSPO Credits. On the PalmTrace trading platform your company can purchase credits that cover (a part of) your annual palm (kernel) oil usage. These credits each represent a tonne of certified palm oil, supplied by producers that are part of the RSPO book & claim supply chain. All these producers adhere to the RSPO Principles and Criteria for sustainable palm oil production and are audited annually. This way, you are guaranteed RSPO credits represent palm (kernel) oil from certified sources. Credits are supplied by mills, palm kernel crushers, independent smallholders and outgrowers to allow for a diverse supply base with different characteristics.

To make credit trading fast, user-friendly and uncomplicated, RSPO developed the online trading platform PalmTrace. Here you can search, bid and buy credits from the comfort of your own office. To gain access to the credit market and PalmTrace, please follow the steps outlined in figure.
