As a signatory to the Sustainable Palm Oil Manifesto (SPOM), Sime Darby Plantation has pledged to no deforestation, protecting peat land and to drive positive socio – economic impact for people and communities in the plantations it owns and manages. These commitments extend to smallholders and outgrowers, whether contracted or independent, from whom the company sources its Fresh Fruit Bunches (FFB) and other palm products.
In alignment to SDP’s commitment to sustainability, Sime Darby Plantation has developed a Responsible Sourcing Guideline (RSG) to lead our decision in sourcing externally. It includes:
- Guidelines for Sourcing of Third Party Fresh Fruit Bunch (FFB)
- Guidelines for Sourcing of Third Party Crude Palm Oil (CPO) and its Derivatives
