BIODIVERSITY & CONSERVATION

Conservation is the soul of our company. At ANJ we believe that environmental sustainability can go hand in hand with business.

We continuously monitor and assesses our conservation initiatives and works in collaboration with scientists and environmental experts in designing and managing our plantation areas as conservation area for biodiversity.

As a member of the RSPO since February 27, 2007, we are committed to following the latest Principles and Criteria (P&C) that were adopted and ratified by the RSPO in November 2018. We are also committed to follow the New Planting Procedures (NPP) issued by the RSPO in November 2015.

To manage our environmental impacts, we have set the following high-level commitments and goals in our group-wide Sustainability Policy:

  • Responsible development of new areas incorporating an integrated landscape approach.
  • Total protection and conservation of independently identified High Conservation Value-High Carbon Stock (HCV-HCS) forests.
  • Zero land clearing for oil palm in independently identified HCV and HCS areas following RSPO protocols. Development of identified HCS areas pertaining to legacy cases will strictly follow RSPO's requirements.
  • No new development in peat areas of any depth, and conservation of peatlands.
  • Commitment to reducing Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions.
  • Zero Land Burning.
  • Taking precaution when developing on fragile soils, slopes, and water ways (including river basins).

Our Sustainability Policy includes provisions related to ‘No Deforestation, No Peat, No Exploitation’ (NDPE). We will not develop primary forests, and conservation of these forests is a priority. Independently identified HCS areas will not be cleared for oil palm development, in accordance with RSPO protocols. Development of identified HCS areas pertaining to legacy cases will strictly comply to RSPO’s requirements.

ANJ has not carried out any new development for planting activities since November 29, 2018.
