We collect and calculate emissions for our palm oil and rubber operations throughout the calendar year using the RSPO PalmGHG calculator version 3 and the GHG Protocol accounting standard. The RSPO PalmGHG calculator is used to measure emissions from land-use change (LUC) due to replanting and new planting activities. The operational emissions data is collected and calculated in accordance with the GHG Protocol accounting standard.
We are continuously working towards improving the energy efficiency of our operations. We focus on emissions directly from SDP’s operations, including land clearing and preparation, planting, fertilising, harvesting, extraction, transportation and processing of raw materials. We currently do not manage emissions that are generated by third-parties who supply fresh fruit bunches.
In line with our intention to be part of global efforts to decarbonise the economy and mitigate the adverse effects of climate change, we set a target for reducing 40% of emission by 2030.
