      "Each of our businesses has policies and processes to identify, assess and manage ESG risks associated with our customers. Among other things, these policies require that each of our businesses is able to: identify relevant legislation and regulatory requirements and assess a customer's compliance with these requirements, assess how our customers manage environmental, social and governance risks consider the impact of changes in legislation and regulations on a customer's business [...] assess the risk of liability for environmental issues being transferred to the Group entity." [...] "Wilmar recognises that while plantation development has contributed significantly to economic development, deforestation and other business-as-usual practices have an impact on people and the environment. For this reason, they are working closely with other growers, traders, processors, NGOs, end-user companies, financial institutions and other industry stakeholders to protect forests, peatlands, and human and community rights."

            NAB includes FPIC in their risk assessments of financing - "NAB includes the issue of land rights in our ESG risk assessment processes for lending and procurement. This issue is particularly relevant when we assess proposals for lending provided to companies in the soft commodities, forestry and mining sectors, where there is potential for land acquisition issues to impact on indigenous communities/landholders in developing countries. [...] Improper land acquisition occurs largely in developing countries, where disputes arise over rights to land and natural resources. These disputes arise because: (i) land rights are not clearly defined and large scale commercial land acquisition may have proceeded without free, prior and informed consent of local and indigenous communities or without due regard to legal processes"

            NAB includes FPIC in their risk assessments of financing - "NAB includes the issue of land rights in our ESG risk assessment processes for lending and procurement. This issue is particularly relevant when we assess proposals for lending provided to companies in the soft commodities, forestry and mining sectors, where there is potential for land acquisition issues to impact on indigenous communities/landholders in developing countries. [...] Improper land acquisition occurs largely in developing countries, where disputes arise over rights to land and natural resources.
