The commitment was instituted to ensure that Responsible Development is achieved, that is a good balance of managing social, environmental, and economic responsibilities (people, planet, profit).
• People: moving forward together with the community as equal partners
• Planet: maintaining environmental balance and community welfare in every ANJ operation
• Profit: obtaining a fair return of viable businesses
We aim to achieve responsible development by using best management practices based on a balanced implementation of our main policy pillars: Environmental Stewarship, Business Policy and Social Responsibilities.
The implementation of the sustainable principles is reflected in various programs in all our operations which are widely spread, from Sumatera, Kalimantan, Java, to Papua.
In Sumatra, our education program, through Adiwiyata, teaches and shares knowledge about environment to the students.
In Kalimantan, besides managing 657 hectares of conservation area, ANJ is proposing another 2,330 hectares of conservation area to be managed together with the community and other stakeholders.
In Papua, community development programs are integrated by accommodating the aspirations of the village communities and tribes surrounding ANJ operations through a Free, Prior, and Informed Consent (FPIC) process. As a member of Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), ANJ complies with the RSPO principles and criteria, including the New Planting Procedure for its palm oil plantation operations. We start our business activity by conducting the environmental impact assessment, which includes assessments on High Conservation Value (HCV) and High Carbon Stock (HCS).
ANJ implements sustainability principles by adopting a landscape approach, multi-stakehoder partnership, and individual and community institutional capacity building. ANJ collaborates with local and central government, as well as non-governmental organizations and research institutions to create effective programs.
