Listed on the Mainboard of the Singapore Exchange on 29 April 2010, Global Palm Resources Holdings Limited ("Global Palm Resources") is an Indonesia-based oil palm producer. The Group is involved in the cultivation, harvesting and processing of oil palm fruit into crude palm oil ("CPO") and palm kernel for sale.

Global Palm Resources' plantation and mill is strategically located in West Kalimantan, a region where the climatic conditions are highly suitable for oil palm cultivation. Since its founding in 1991, it has a land bank of 16,079 hectare ("ha") of which about 83.8% is under cultivation. As at 31 December 2016, approximately 92.8% of the Group's oil palms are in mature production stage.

Sustainable development is an integral part of our business and it is embedded in the way we operate. We are dedicated to improving the living conditions as well as quality of life of the local communities around us, and also actively contributing in the areas of education, social, and cultural welfare.

With the view to conserve and preserve the natural environment, we adopt a "zero burning" policy for oil palm cultivation, using chainsaws and machinery, rather than fire, to clear land for cultivation which causes air pollution and risks forest fires.

The Group also has a 'zero waste management' for our CPO production with our co-composting plant generating organic fertilisers by co-composting empty palm fruit bunches ("EFB") and palm oil mill effluent ("POME"). This is a major step towards the further greening of our operations as this co-composting process significantly reduces the amount of methane gases released into the environment compared with traditional methods of disposal. In addition, it also reduces our reliance and expenditures on commercial fertilisers, which is in line with our direction of positioning as a low cost producer.

Since 26 May 2010, the Group became a member of the Roundtable of Sustainable Palm Oil, a not-for-profit association which promotes the production and use of palm oil in a sustainable manner.
