We are passionately committed to sustainable outcomes for the oil palm cultivation industry. By advocating for responsible production methods and judicious policy to support these efforts, we work towards making oil palm cultivation a sustainable, responsible and profitable venture. We believe that acting ethically is not only the right thing to do, but also the right thing for the industry.
We are dedicated to sustainable outcomes for the industry through strict crop, water and soil management, where the continued development and growth of the sector does not adversely affect environment or deplete natural resources.
We advocate for better regulation for the industry in the areas of imports, growing and exports. We understand that the industry, environment and local economy can benefit by informed and strategic policy making and strict regulation.
We emphasise openness in the industry, where matters are transparent with respect to processes and practices. We aim to reduce misconceptions about the industry by promoting transparency within the industry and in all we do.
We strive towards reducing exchange loss, increasing local job opportunities, and improving exchange earnings by enhancing the potentials of cultivators, refiners, processors, manufacturers and marketers of oil palm products.
We are keenly committed to conservation and enhancement of the ecosystem to provide for the next generation, through strategies such as soil rehabilitation, water capture and wild life protection.
We provide insights into the oil palm industry, alongside training and assistance for industry stakeholders. Explore our Knowledge Centre to find out more about the inner workings of a global industry.
