Between 2016-2019, almost 15,000 forest trees have been planted in three of our concession areas, covering 43 hectares. In 2019, some of these areas were affected by forest fires which originated from outside our concessions, dampening our efforts. In 2020, we rehabilitated 27 hectares of HCV areas spanning three concessions by planting more than 6,800 forest trees, exceeding our target of 26 hectares."

The assessments also provide inputs in the planning and implementation of programmes to help mitigate the negative impacts that may result from our operations as well as support positive outcomes. [...] We have been following the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) New Planting Procedures (NPP) where all new developments within our plantations are subjected to third-party HCV assessments conducted by RSPO approved assessors [...] Going forward, all new land clearing for oil palm plantation will be preceded by an integrated High Conservation Value – High Carbon Stock Approach (HCV-HCSA) assessment."
