Sustainability

Olam Plantations, Concessions & Farms

We have expanded our upstream operations across 10 products and 11 origins, increasing our control over traceability and stewardship. We are focusing on full compliance with relevant international industry standards. In those instances where a recognised standard does not exist, we work with academic institutions, industry experts and NGOs to develop and implement our own.

We divide our upstream operations into:

  • Plantations (e.g. almonds, coffee, palm, rubber) – developing our plantations to internationally recognised standards
  • Concessions (e.g. forestry) – managing our forestry operations to industry standards, safeguarding environmental stewardship and social welfare
  • Company Farms (e.g. rice) – we are applying recognised sustainable agricultural practices to minimise impact and maximise yields.

Olam Plantations, Concessions and Farms Code

The Olam Plantations, Concessions and Farms (PCF) Code defines the process and standards for managing the environmental and social requirements of acquisitions and new and existing upstream developments across the entire project life-cycle.

It is applicable for Olam-owned and operated projects as well as partnerships and joint ventures in operating upstream enterprises.
