Global Palm Oil Map
A Bluenumber initiative to support sustainability within the Palm Oil Industry
The Global Palm Oil Map (GPOM) is a Bluenumber initiative to support sustainability in the Palm Oil Industry. GPOM is a consolidated map of data from open public sources and private volunteered sources. Bluenumber independently and neutrally analyses the information using BlueView supply chain mapping methodology to present it in a single map.
Each entity on the GPOM is verified using a unique Bluenumber Digital Identity (B#-ID). We check how many times every person, place or organisation is referenced in different independent sources. We only show entities that we can verify against two or more data sources.
Do you have a dataset to share or check of people, places or businesses involved in Palm Oil?
We will continuously update GPOM as an open-source resource for all parties working to make the Palm Oil sector more sustainable. Bluenumber invites you to contribute your datasets to help others know how and where sustainable Palm Oil is produced.
GPOM uses Bluenumber Digital Identity (B#-ID) to check and verify that all entities are unique. B#-ID ensures no double-counting or duplication of data. We triangulate independent data sources against each other to verify every person, place or organisation presented.
