RSPO PalmGHG Calculator

Announcing RSPO’s Palmghg (Greenhouse Gas) Calculator

The PalmGHG Calculator developed by the Greenhouse Gas Working Group 2 of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) will be available for use before the end of 2012. Palm oil producers will be able to use the calculator to estimate and monitor their net greenhouse gas emissions. The Calculator will also enable palm oil producers to identify the hotspots in their production chain and thereby guiding emission reduction opportunities. The PalmGHG calculator has recently undergone a peer review by a panel of palm oil and life cycle assessment (LCA) experts and the comments have been taken into consideration to further develop the tool. To support interested members in using PalmGHG, RSPO is planning to hold the first training workshop at the end of November or early December this year in Kuala Lumpur. More information on PalmGHG will be shared during the Preparatory Cluster on Greenhouse Gas at the upcoming RT 10 in Singapore.

Latest updates on RSPO's PalmGHG Calculator

RSPO is developing a more user-friendly version of the PalmGHG calculator. As a result, the calculator is being reviewed and some amendments are being made to PalmGHG Beta version 1a to improve the calculator. A pilot programme is being launched at the end of February 2014 to review the functionality of the proposed new version.
