Sustainability

Care for the People and Communities​

Our sustainability practices form the bedrock in perpetuating a strong relationship between the organisation and communities. The notable impact of these practices can be seen in many form such as providing social welfare to the employees, maintaining an appropriate standard of employment condition and enforcing occupational safety & health practices. We also engage in relationship building and networking among the plantation communities.

The company is committed to continue openly communicating and consulting local communities through Free, Prior Informed Consent (FPIC) process for any new development.
