The RSPO-RED Requirements for compliance with the EU Renewable Energy Directive requirements (also referred to as RSPO-RED requirements or RSPO-RED scheme) have been designed as voluntary add-on to the RSPO standard.
The RSPO-RED scheme allows palm oil producers and processors under certain conditions to comply with requirements in the EU Directive 2009/28/EC on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources. This Directive (commonly referred to as ‘EU-RED’) specifies sustainability requirements for biofuels and bioliquids in the European Union.
The RSPO-RED requirements have been designed to be used in conjunction with the RSPO Principles & Criteria, the RSPO Certification System requirements, the RSPO Supply Chain Certification System requirements and the RSPO Supply Chain Certification Standard.
