We are mindful that certain aspects of our oil palm plantation and CPO processing operations may have an environmental impact on our surroundings. Therefore, with the view to conserving and preserving our surrounding environment, we have made sustainable development an integral part of our Group's corporate social responsibility.

  1. "Zero burning" policy for planting of new oil palms
    We adopt a "zero burning" policy in our landclearing for oil palm cultivation. We clear trees and vegetation using chain saws and machinery instead of traditional "slash-and-burn" methods of land-clearing that cause air pollution and risk forest fires.

  2. Moving towards "Zero waste management" on CPO production waste and plans to employ co-composting method in the treatment of EFB and POME.
    Our CPO production by-products comprise of EFB (empty palm fruit bunches) and POME (palm oil ,ill effluent). Presently, EFB are left to decompose in several landfills whereas POME is subject to waste treatment processes in accordance with applicable Indonesian requirements before being discharged into the river near our palm oil mill. We plan to employ the co-composting method of treating EFB and POME to replace our existing methods of disposal of EFB and POME through the construction of a co-composting plant.

    The proposed co-composting method of treatment of EFP and POME to be undertaken by the proposed co-composting plant will produce organic compost fertilizers which will result in savings on current expenditure for fertilisers used in our oil palm plantation. In addition, the proposed treatment will also reduce the emission of methane gases compared to our existing traditional method of disposal of EFB and POME.

  3. Submitted an application to the Roundtable of Sustainable Palm Oil ("RSPO")
    We are a member of the RSPO, a not-for-profit association which promotes the production and use of palm oil in a sustainable for membership manner.
