          "Our sustainability team conducts pre and post development checks to ensure that only non-conservation areas are slated for new development. We also put in place buffer zones to mitigate the risks of accidental non-compliance. In addition, our plantation managers have key performance indicators tied to no development on conservation areas. For plantations located near riparian reserves, we take special precautions to avoid the accidental clearance of key conservation areas.[...]To curb poaching, we also conduct daily monitoring patrols and place signboards as reminders at strategic locations."
