JOil secures God Standard sustainability certification for Ghana jatropha plantation

March 7, 2022 |

In Singapore, Jatropha JOil Singapore Pte Limited (JOil) has become the first corporate to be awarded the world-class sustainability certification Gold Standard for its Jatropha plantation in Ghana. Its Jatropha trees produce fruits that are a non-food, low carbon footprint source material for a variety of eco-friendly industrial applications, including biofuel.

A best-in-class certification globally for climate and development projects, the prestigious Gold Standard certification has been awarded to JOil’s Jatropha plantations in Bono East Province, Ghana, as afforestation, reforestation and re-desertification (ARR) project, the first corporate to achieve this, since the certification was established in 2003 by WWF and other international NGOs as a best practice standard for sustainable development.
