As the world´s largest producer of certified sustainable palm oil, Sime Darby Plantation plays a leading role in the development and promotion of sustainable practices in the palm oil sector. We are a founding member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) and we seek to advance the production, procurement and use of sustainable oil palm products.
Our commitment to sustainable development resonates with the Group's brand promise of Developing Sustainable Futures. We believe that there is no alternative to sustainable development. We work closely with our business partners who are as committed to sustainability and social responsibility as we are. As we continue on this journey, we welcome constructive feedback and dialogue at all times.
We appreciate that the journey to achieve sustainability is not something we can undertake on our own and thus we actively engage with all our stakeholders in order to help us achieve our targets for sustainable development.
