Organisation's Commitments Toward Sustainability

  • How will your organisation promote the RSPO internally and to other stakeholders?
    Our Association ensures that members adhere to the RSPO Principles and Criteria. As a Association, we have an internal control system manual to guide our RSPO certification process.
  • Where relevant, what processes is the organisation establishing to engage with interested parties, for example to resolve conflict or to use sustainably produced palm oil?
    We engage the communities in which we have our farms located. Members are aware that they have to ensure that their activities do not affect the communities negatively.
  • Where relevant, how will your organisation work towards implementing the RSPO Principles and Criteria or assessing supplier performance against these criteria?
    We have internal inspectors that have received training to ensure that each member meets the RSPO standards.
  • Any other information that would support the application such as what your organisation hopes to gain from joining RSPO and how it would support RSPO?
    Our Association is part of the RSPO Smallholder Support Fund project in Ghana. We believe our participation in RSPO will come with a lot of benefits including increase in yields, improve knowledge in best management practices and increase in incomes as we sell our certificate in the Greenpalm platform
