Astra Agro Lestari acknowledges that responsible production of palm oil is a vital requirement, therefore we always seek to maintain balance between the interests of society, the environment, and the sustainable profitability of the economy. Astra Agro Lestari’s Sustainability Policy reflects our ongoing efforts in applying efficient practices throughout the protection of forests and peatlands, respecting human rights, ensuring safe and stable conditions for all employees and communities within our vicinity. We will conserve forests, peatlands, human rights and collaborate with smallholders, NGOs, and other relevant stakeholders to implement our sustainability principles.
We work with the Consortium of Resource Experts (CORE) for the implementation of our Sustainability Policy including building a system for tracking and transparency across all operations and supply chains. CORE is a collaboration between Daemeter and Proforest which has the expertise and technical standards required to implement our Sustainability Policy.
