How we work with Asian Agri and Apical on Palm Oil
In June 2015, Asian Agri (AA) and Apical announced their joint TFT membership and our shared plan to deliver on the commitments in their Sustainability Policy. AA covers the upstream (mills and plantations) and Apical the downstream (refining and distribution) elements of Royal Golden Eagle’s palm oil business.
AA and Apical launched their Sustainability Policy in late 2014 and enlisted TFT’s support to deliver on their core aims of traceability of their supply chains, protection of HCV, HCS and peatland areas and driving positive socio-economic impact for people and communities.
We are now implementing a joint 18 month plan, with the twin aims of establishing a model for mapping, assessing and transforming their supply chains and building the resources and expertise within AA and Apical to take this forward with reducing reliance on TFT.
