    Endorsed by the RSPO, our Lead Auditor and RSPO Lead Auditor Supply Chain Certification courses are designed for those wishing to carry out auditing for the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) producer standard.
    We have licensed trainers to enable assessors can to gain licenses to carry out High Conservation Value (HCV) and High Carbon Stock (HCS) assessments.

We are also qualified to provide training on all HCV reporting requirements and assessment best practice.

We have developed a number of one-day workshops that we can run in the field for teams on the ground. This includes our Responsible Sourcing Practical Guide, which provides practical guidance for the development and implementation of responsible sourcing policies.

For example, as part of the Africa Practitioners Network (APN) we support trainees to attain practical experience by providing opportunities for them to work on real audits, HCV assessments or consultation exercises with experienced experts.
