Organisation's Commitments Toward Sustainability

  • How will your organisation promote the RSPO internally and to other stakeholders?
    We have already initiated the efforts and commitments to internalize the RSPO P&C into our various management policies and standard operation procedures which would enable our mills and estates to carry out their daily operations and activities with all the good management elements and practices laid down by RSPO P&C.

    As part of RSPO requirement, our estates and mills have engaged with the Forestry Department, Wildlife Department and Department of Environment to brief them on the RSPO practices that we have initiated in our estates and mill. The officials were glad to learn what RSPO is all about from our Managers and Assistants and their responses were generally very positive towards RSPO.
  • Where relevant, what processes is the organisation establishing to engage with interested parties, for example to resolve conflict or to use sustainably produced palm oil?
    Procedures on stakeholder engagement and evidences of implementation available on site
  • Where relevant, how will your organisation work towards implementing the RSPO Principles and Criteria or assessing supplier performance against these criteria?
    Pending Takon Production Unit (Pending approval on HCV Compensation plan approval from RSPO), all others Production Units are RSPO certified.
  • Any other information that would support the application such as what your organisation hopes to gain from joining RSPO and how it would support RSPO?
