BN02. Development of a Landscape Programme in Siak and Pelalawan, Indonesia
Companies purchasing palm oil from the Siak and Pelalawan districts of the Riau province in Indonesia worked extensively with their suppliers to implement supply chain traceability and map their exposure to environmental and social risks on the ground. However, they quickly appreciated that most sustainability problems were shared by many mills, and that collaboration amongst multiple parties such as local government, local NGOs, producers and smallholders, would be necessary to effect change towards responsible production practices.
This second publication in our series of Production Landscape briefings explores the landscape approach that these companies are taking, and how this has the potential to drive meaningful change with tangible impact.
