Noble Group makes its one mill location available. Concession boundaries have been made available to the RSPO and the company declares these represent 100% of their concession sites, but not all may not be publicly available due to ongoing legal issues. Maps will become available on GeoRSPO. The concessions are not yet available on the SPOTT map.
