Profile

Noble Plantations Pte Ltd is an oil palm grower and has been a member of the RSPO since October 31, 2011.
Noble Plantations Pte Ltd entered into the palm oil business as a grower in June 2010 by acquiring a controlling share in PT Henrison Inti Persada (PT HIP) in the Sorong Regency, West Papua Province. PT HIP is developing a plantation with a landbank of 32,546 ha, of which 12,129 ha have been planted (end of December 2018), and it is now operating one crude palm oil (CPO) mill (coordinates: 131°33’41” E - 01°04’32” S). We do not purchase fresh fruit bunches (FFB) from independent suppliers.
During 2013, Noble Plantations began development at PT Pusaka Agro Lestari (PT PAL) in the Mimika Regency, in Papua Province. PT PAL has a landbank of 38,159 ha of which 7,615 ha has been planted (end of December 2018). A CPO mill is planned for completion by mid-2020.
Thus, the total landbank of Noble Plantations Pte Ltd is more than 70,705 ha (ACOP, 2018), with a total planted area of 19,745 ha (end of December 2018). This includes the smallholder scheme with an area of 2,607 hectares. These two locations are the only landholdings of Noble Plantations. The location of the concessions is publicly available and shown in our RSPO Annual Communications of Progress (ACOP) 2014 and in the Summary Reports of the SEIA and HCV Assessments.
