The ANJ Sustainability Policy is our commitment to Sustainable Development in the Oil Palm Industry. On October 31, 2019, we re-issued the policy making clear our commitments with regards to avoiding and minimizing the impacts of activities on communities and the environment in compliance with RSPO Principles & Criteria (P&C 2018) and other international benchmarks. Our Sustainability Policy takes into consideration the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and links them to our sustainable development approach. It demonstrates how we practice Responsible Development, especially in the oil palm sector.
The guiding principles of Corporate and Social Responsibility, Transparency, and No Deforestation, No Peat and No Exploitation (NDPE) in accordance with RSPO’s definition, principles & criteria and guidance, are thread throughout the entire policy. It is founded on three key elements that it aims to balance:
We support Responsible Business Practices, which is the foundation for implementing all elements of the policy, guided by an adaptive management approach to incrementally achieve sustainability in our operations. We consider our Sustainability Policy as a living document and its implementation will be phased and continuous.
The Sustainability Policy is complemented with an Implementation Guidance that can be revised for continuous improvement or to reflect any changes in the RSPO P&C. Various key elements are expanded to provide a better understanding of the Sustainability Policy and the approach taken towards its implementation. The Implementation Guidance was last updated in 2021 to add more clarity in several sections of the document.
