The RSPO has set up 2 certification systems:
Both systems involve third-party certification bodies. Such rigorous certification systems considerably reduce the risk for consumers to use palm oil that is not sustainable.
Sustainable palm oil from a single identifiable certified source is kept separately from ordinary palm oil throughout supply chain.
Sustainable palm oil from different certified sources is kept separate from ordinary palm oil throughout supply chain.
Sustainable palm oil from certified sources is mixed with ordinary palm oil throughout supply chain.
The supply chain is not monitored for the presence of sustainable palm oil. Manufacturers and retailers can buy Credits from RSPO-certified growers, crushers and independent smallholders.
