Résumé : GHG emissions from palm plantations are a major environmental issue in main producing countries. Through its working groups, RSPO developed a GHG calculator, PalmGHG, which can help the producers to monitor the GHG emissions from their supply areas and mill units and establish reduction plans. In 2013, the use of PalmGHG (or an RSPO endorsed equivalent) has been integrated in the revised Principles & Criteria for the Production of Sustainable Palm Oil (P&C 2013), which created an emulation to tackle this GHG issue. This paper provides an overview of the development of PalmGHG and its various versions as well as explains the main characteristics, calculation assumptions and features. (Résumé d'auteur)
